    ruleset or rule set

    I know this is probably the waaaayyyyy wrong place to for spelling-related questions ...but I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere else:

    Is it firewall ruleset or rule set?

    According to Google, there's over 100,000 entres for ruleset.

    Dictionary.com doesn't recognize the word, nor does my Outlook dictionary.

    I'd go with the Google result.

    I would go for ruleset, it's a relatively new term but it is a noun nonetheless and shouldn't be separated into two words. At most it should be hyphenated, but I'd rather it wasn't.

    Following Lats' lead I googled the terms (which I should have done in the first place ):

    ruleset: 99,600 mentions

    "rule set" and "rule-set" (Google can't distinguish between the two): 50,200 mentions

    So, ruleset it is . Thanks!!
