    I have checked in Google. In my country FROB means Fundacja Rozwoju Obrotu Bezgotówkowego (Foundation for the Development of Cashless Transactions).

    This is what I found:
    Frob definition: Noun (plural frobs) 1. (jargon, MIT) Any small device or object (usually hand-sized) which can be manipulated.
    From Yourdictionary.com
