Meaning of HELLO, SAILOR!

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Occasional West Coast equivalent of hello, world; seems to have originated at SAIL, later associated with the game zork (which also included "hello, aviator" and "hello, implementor"). Originally from the traditional hooker's greeting to a swabbie fresh off the boat, of course.
