Meaning of PIP

Pronunciation:  pip

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Peripheral Interchange Program.

A program on cp/m, rsx-11, rsts/e, tops-10, and os/8 (derived from a utility on the pdp-6) that was used for file copying (and in OS/8 and RT-11 for just about every other file operation you might want to do). It is said that when the program was written, during the development of the PDP-6 in 1963, it was called ATLATL ("Anything, Lord, to Anything, Lord"; this played on the Nahuatl word "atlatl" for a spear-thrower, with connotations of utility and primitivity that were no doubt quite intentional).

See also blt, dd, cat.
