Word:

wallpaper

Noun1.wallpaper - a decorative paper for the walls of rooms
Verb1.wallpaper - cover with wallpaper
Synonyms: paper
1.wallpaper - A file containing a listing (e.g. assembly listing) or a transcript, especially a file containing a transcript of all or part of a login session. (The idea was that the paper for such listings was essentially good only for wallpaper, as evidenced at Stanford, where it was used to cover windows).

The term is now rare, especially since other systems have developed other terms for it (e.g. PHOTO on TWENEX). However, the Unix world doesn't have an equivalent term, so perhaps wallpaper will take hold there. The term probably originated on ITS, where the commands to begin and end transcript files were ":WALBEG" and ":WALEND", with default file "WALL PAPER" (the space was a path delimiter).
2.wallpaper - The background pattern used on graphical workstations under the Microsoft Windows graphical user interface to MS-DOS.
To dream that you or someone else is hanging up wallpaper, signifies that you are putting up a barrier or some sort of shield between yourself and others. It also suggests that you are covering something up - a secret of sorts. Alternatively, it may mean something that needs beautifying. To dream that you are peeling or stripping off wallpaper, denotes that you are beginning to let your guard down or breaking down a barrier that you have kept between you and others. It also indicates that you are revealing aspects of yourself that have been kept well hidden. The colour and pattern of the wallpaper will offer clues as what kind of barrier, secret, or feeling is being represented by the wallpaper.board, brick, clapboard, face, glass, glaze, lath, paper, plank, revet, shake, sheathe, shingle, slate, stone, thatch, tile, veneer, wall in, wall up, weatherboard
