Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The tag refers to at least three concepts:

  1. In Ruby (and other languages including TCL?), it refers to a piece of code converted into an object.
  2. Pro*C is an embedded SQL programming language.
  3. In Linux (any other unices?), it refers to /proc or something related.

I'm not sure how to split the tags up.

For the first one, as it doesn't seem to be Ruby only, I don't think ruby-proc would work, apart from as a synonym. Would proc-object work? Are procs objects in the other programming languages?

For the second one, I guess it could be called proc-language, if that's the accepted terminology.

Hammar has suggested in comments the third one be called procfs or proc-filesystem.

Update: For Ruby and friends, it's been changed to . For the Linux term, it should be changed to as it's an existing tag.

How about procfs or maybe proc-filesystem? – hammar Sep 29 '11 at 0:36
Maybe the second could be proc-sql? – Ben Voigt Oct 7 '11 at 0:09
Is Pro*C specific to oracle? In which case it could be oracle-proc – simonn May 15 '12 at 8:09
