  • exec 8 — (operating system)   Unisys's operating system from about 1980 to 2000, by which time it was a dying breed with Unisys moving to Windows NT and Unix.
  • socket 8 — (hardware, standard)   A physical and electrical specification for the x86 processor socket matching the pins on a Pentium Pro microprocessor. Socket 8 uses a dual pattern PGA/SPGA LIF/ZIF socket with 387 pins, arranged 24x26.

  • g8 — Group of Eight
  • h8 — hate
  • m8 — mate
  • v8 — noting an internal-combustion engine having two opposed banks of four cylinders, each inclined so that the axes of the cylinders form a V -shaped angle as seen from the end of the engine.
  • w8 — wait

  • c68 — c386
  • g-8 — the successor to the G-7, composed of the G-7 countries and Russia
  • gr8 — great
  • rg8 — (networking, hardware)   The original "full spec" cable used for 10base5 Ethernet networks. RG8 is stiff, large diameter coaxial cable with an impedance of 50 ohms, a member of the "Radio Guide" series. The outer sheath is usually yellow, to indicate double shielding, so it is often just called "yellow cable". 10base5 cable is designed to allow transceivers to be added while existing connections are live. This is achieved using a "vampire tap". RG8 is sometimes called "thicknet" or "thick Ethernet" in contrast to RG58, a cheaper, thinner, more flexible alternative.
  • sk8 — skate

  • 8048 — Intel 8048
  • 8088 — Intel 8088
  • arm8 — (processor)   A RISC microprocessor core designed by Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. with 50000 transistors. The design of the ARM8 is not yet public but it is not superscalar. The ARM8 will form the core of the ARM800 microprocessor integrated circuit.
  • pl.8 — A systems dialect of PL/I, developed originally for the IBM 801 RISC minicomputer, later used internally for IBM RT and R/6000 development.
  • rg58 — (networking, hardware)   A common, low-impedance (52 ohm), quarter-inch diameter coaxial cable with BNC connectors, used for 10base2 Ethernet wiring, sometimes called "cheapernet" in comparison with "full spec" RG8 cabling. A member of the "Radio Guide" series.

  • 80188 — Intel 80188
  • din-8 — (hardware)   An 8-pin round connector, sometimes used for EIA-232 serial communication when space is restricted, such as on laptop computers.
  • oc-48 — Optical Carrier 48
  • u-238 — the radioactive uranium isotope having a mass number 238, comprising 99.28 percent of natural uranium: used chiefly in nuclear reactors as a source of the fissionable isotope plutonium 239.
  • utf-8 — (character)   (UCS transformation format 8) An ASCII-compatible multibyte Unicode and UCS encoding, used by Java and Plan 9. The Unicode character set occupies a 16-bit code space. The most obvious Unicode encoding (known as UCS-2) consists of a sequence of 16-bit words. Such strings can contain bytes like '\0' or '/' which have a special meaning in filenames and other C library function parameters. In addition, the majority of Unix tools expects ASCII files and can't read 16-bit words as characters without major modifications. For these reasons, UCS-2 is not a suitable external encoding of Unicode in filenames, text files, environment variables, etc. The ISO 10646 Universal Character Set (UCS), a superset of Unicode, occupies a 31-bit code space and the obvious UCS-4 encoding for it (a sequence of 32-bit words) has the same problems. The UTF-8 encoding of Unicode and UCS avoids the problems of fixed-length Unicode encodings because an ASCII file encoded in UTF is exactly same as the original ASCII file and all non-ASCII characters are guaranteed to have the most significant bit set (bit 0x80). This means that normal tools for text searching etc. work as expected. UTF-8 is defined in RFC 2279.

  • multipop-68 — (operating system)   An early time-sharing operating system developed in Edinburgh by Robin Popplestone and others. It was inspired by MIT' Project MAC, via a "MiniMac" project which was aborted when it became obvious that Elliot Brothers Ltd. could not supply the necessary disk storage. Multipop was highly efficient in its use of machine resources to support symbolic programming, and effective - e.g. in supporting the development of the Boyer-Moore theorem prover and of Burstall and Darlington's transformation work. It was not good at supporting the user programs which were then the standard fare of computing, e.g. matrix inversion. This arose from the fact that while the POP-2 compiler generated good code for function call (which is a lot of what layered systems like operating systems do) it did not generate efficient code for arithmetic or store access, because there was no way to police the generation of illegal objects statically. (Hindley-Milner type checking did not exist). Indeed, since many OS features like file-access were performed by function-call (of a closure) rather than an OS call requiring a context switch, POP-2 actually gained performance. Multipop68 was efficient primarily because the one language, POP-2 served all purposes: it was the command language for the operating system as well as being the only available programming language. Thus there was no need to swap in compilers etc. All store management was accomplished uniformly by the garbage collector, as opposed to having store management for the OS and store management for each application. There was a substantial amount of assembly language in Multipop68. This was primarily for interrupt handling, and it is difficult to handle this without a real-time garbage-collector.
