Definition(s) from the Web

  1. cpuminer is a simple client program that performs Pooled Mining or solo mining. The program receives proposed block data from the server, for which it tries to guess a nonce value that will result in a valid block. If a block hash with at least 32 consecutive zero bits is found, the block data containing the guessed nonce value is sent back to the server. If used in Pooled Mining mode, this block is called a “share” because the server is supposed to credit the registered user’s account, according to the number of shares that user has contributed, and eventually transfer an amount of bitcoins to the registered user’s address.

  2. CPU Miner has largely been superceded by Con Kolivas’s cgminer fork (with GPU support) and Luke-Jr’s BFGMiner fork (with FPGA support). Source
