On the A320/330/340 and the 777, does fly-by-wire mean that the only
connections between the pilot and the control surfaces are wires and
servos, or does the term simply mean that the control inputs are passed
through a computer before they are transmitted to the control surfaces via
conventional hydraulic lines and actuators?
