by metaphoric extension, a "frob" is any random small thing; an object that you
can comfortably hold in one hand; something you can frob (sense 2). See
2. Abbreviated form of frobnicate.
3. [MUD] A command on some MUDs that changes a player's experience level (this

"professional courtesy" grounds that one is a wizard elsewhere. The command is
actually "frobnicate" but is universally abbreviated to the shorter form.
