Looking at a C tutorial that is constantly comparing to C++, and read about how C++ handles in/out, using the "cin" "cout" commands, and being the kind of guy who likes to know what stuff means, I was wondering what the Logic behind it was. At first, I was thinking along the lines of "cinema" and "clout"(No, it doesn't make sense), but when I looked again, it suddenly dawned on me, "Why, it must be "c-in" and "c-out" !"(Yes, I am slow). My question? What does the "c" stand for. Does it stand for C as in the language; does it stand for cool-in, cool-out? I'll probably figure it out, and it will probably be very obvious, but for now, I'm lost.
