Rc is a programming language designed by Byron Davies at Bell Labs in the mid-80s. The syntax of Rc has never been formally specified, but it is generally considered to be similar to that of the C programming language. It was designed as an improvement over the shell languages previously used on Unix systems, with features like structured programming constructs and functions. Rc influenced later shells such as es or Plan 9’s rc, which in turn have influenced mksh, one of today's Korn Shell implementations.
