Rc




1. <filename extension> (run commands) The filename extension common to many Unix configuration files, e.g. .newsrc, .cshrc, .twmrc, elmrc, etc.

The suffix "rc" derives from a script-creation utility in CTSS called "runcom" (for "run commands").

Unix FAQ (http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/unix-faq/faq/top.html).

2. A shell from AT&T's Plan 9, by Tom Duff.

rc offers much the same capabilities as a traditional Bourne shell, but with a much cleaner syntax.

An open source reimplementation was made by Byron Rakitzis, and is now maintained by Tim Goodwin <tjg@star.le.ac.uk>.

Latest version: 1.6, as of 2000-06-15.
