    The term "jumper" as used in PC computer boards, is a small
    rectangular block that can be added or removed (or moved) according to
    various options made available by the manufacturer.
    Most of these blocks can plug into pins that have a 0.100 spacing, but
    there are some with 2mm pin spacing.
    For a drawing, see http://www.mouser.com/catalog/616/721.pdf
    The term "jumper" is a general electronics term that is applied to
    either various removeable and solder-in components; what is used in PC
    computers is only one variation.
