    This is the Jargon File, a comprehensive compendium of hacker slang
    illuminating many aspects of hackish tradition, folklore, and humor.
        - The Jargon File, version 2.9.9

    This document is a collection of slang terms used by various subcultures
    of computer hackers.  Though some technical material is included for
    background and flavor, it is not a technical dictionary; what we
    describe here is the language hackers use among themselves for fun,
    social communication, and technical debate.

The Revision History section which provides historical background is contained
within the document itself. While edition 1.0.3 contains only about 500 lines,
edition 4.4.7 is over 37000 lines long.
