If you are referring to computer terms, I can help with the following: Function - a piece of code that is called and it replies with an answer. Parameters are sent to the function. The function then use these parameters to do a calculation and return an answer based on the parameters that it received. Procedure (not process) - A piece of code that does a specific calculation without returning an answer. It might change something on the disk or store a value in a specific table etc. Parameters are sent to the procedure to be used in the execution of the procedure. Routine - This is normally part of a procedure, but exists inside a procedure. No need to send any parameters to a routine, because it knows all the variables that exists inside the procedure. Hope it helped.

A function does something. A process follows or expedites or processes the function. A routine does the previous two on an ongoing basis.

Function: a piece of re-usable code in object-oriented systems. Procedure: similar to a function, but does not take arguments. Procedures are also only found in procedural languages like QBASIC, FORTRAN or LOGO, as opposed to Object-oriented languages like C#, Java or VB.NET. A process is a container wherein procedures or functions run as 'threads'.
