From Rosetta Code
Rc is an implementation of UNIX Shell. Other implementations of UNIX Shell.
rc is a simple yet powerful shell written by Tom Duff. Originally used on AT&T's Version 10 UNIX, it is now primarily used under Plan 9, where it is the default shell. Despite rc's simplicity, it is powerful enough that many of Plan 9's basic utilities are written using it.
