A data pack (or fact pack) is a pre-made database that can be fed to a software, such as software agents, Internet bots or chatterbots, to teach information and facts, which it can later look up.
Common data packs may include abbreviations, acronyms, dictionaries, lexicons and technical data, such as country codes, RFCs, filename extensions, TCP and UDP port numbers, country calling codes.
Data packs may come in formats of CSV and SQL that can easily be parsed or imported into a database management system.
The database may consist of a key-value pair, like an association list.

Famous quotes containing the words pack and/or data:
“A man was to live in that egg-shell day and night, a mile from the shore.... Think of making your bed thus in the crest of a breaker! To have the waves, like a pack of hungry wolves, eying you always, night and day, and from time to time making a spring at you, almost sure to have you at last.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Mental health data from the 1950s on middle-aged women showed them to be a particularly distressed group, vulnerable to depression and feelings of uselessness. This isnt surprising. If society tells you that your main role is to be attractive to men and you are getting crows feet, and to be a mother to children and yours are leaving home, no wonder you are distressed.”
—Grace Baruch (20th century)
