Overview#

State is the particular condition that an entity is in at a specific time.

State of a digital logic circuit or computer program is a technical term for all the stored information, at a given instant in time, to which the circuit or program has access.

The output of a digital circuit or computer program at any time is completely determined by its current inputs and its State or data.

stateful systems or protocols maintain state as and operate serially (sequentially) on streams of data and information about previous data characters or packets received is stored and this stored data is used to affect the processing of the current data.

Stateless systems or protocols do NOT state as and any prior knowledge (data) is does NOT affect the processing of the current data.
