It's sixteen degrees outside. Home: - Read No. - Grocery Done. Questions: - What does "rc" stand for (i.e. BSD rc system)? "run command" http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/111611/what-does-the-rc-stand-for-in-etc-rc-d runcom (as in .cshrc or /etc/rc) The rc command derives from the runcom facility from the MIT CTSS system, ca. 1965. From Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie, as told to Vicki Brown: "There was a facility that would execute a bunch of commands stored in a file; it was called runcom for "run commands", and the file began to be called "a runcom". rc in Unix is a fossil from that usage."
