This may or may not be a silly question, but I really would like to know the answer to something which has been bothering me for a while.
I quite often see programming examples/conventions where the programmer has created a directory called
acme to put stuff in.
Acme mean? Why Acme and not Emca or other?
Is Acme like a generic folder name to group miscellaneous OOP classes?
Where did the term come from in terms of the programming convention. As far as I can see, it has nothing to do with a programmer UI http://plan9.bell-labs.com/sys/doc/acme.html
