DWIMAn acronym for a user interface strategy called "Do What I Mean", where common programming errors are corrected in a live sense. The original system to implement this extensively was Xerox's InterLisp system in the 1970's, which was dynamically-scoped, and so had some programmers often confused about what was or wasn't possible in the context.
It generally turned out to be a benefit and a curse: often errors were mis-diagnosed and the wrong corrections were made. It may be possible to rectify this in a modern environment by presenting handlers for these detections which offer options of correction, including just letting the programmer handle it their own way. Smalltalk environments do this, and most likely Java's Eclipse IDE and Visual Studio in the Windows world have something in this direction.
