Reserved for future use

[ #17755 ]

  • ...from the top of my head : "our" used to be reserved for future use in perl.
  • Check out the hiostory of the MacBinary [lazerware.com] file format, a way to store Mac Classic files with both data and resource fork, into a flat (=data fork only, compatible with Windows/Unix systems) file.
