What does MINC mean?
- MINC is a data specification language written in the mid-1980s by a Princeton University graduate student named Lars Graf. This kind of naming is known as a "recursive acronym". It contains many of the syntactical capabilities of the C programming language, and can be used to implement simple procedural programs that can be executed by a runtime parser. MINC continues to be used only in a handful of programs written in the 1980s. It has been for all intents and purposes superseded by modern scripting languages such as Perl, Python, and Tcl. A controversial aspect of the language is whether it is pronounced "mink" or "min-see".
