From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      [very common] In reference to software, source is invariably shorthand for
      ?source code?, the preferred human-readable and human-modifiable form of
      the program. This is as opposed to object code, the derived binary
      executable form of a program. This shorthand readily takes derivative
      forms; one may speak of ?the sources of a system? or of ?having source?.
