The word "JägerMonkey"[edit]

Where does the word "JägerMonkey" come from? I have three potential theories, but have not found a source where the origin is described.

  1. "Jäger", German word for "hunter"
  2. "Düsenjäger", German word for "jet fighter" (because of the speed of the new Javascript engine)
  3. "Jägermeister", an alcoholic drink

Maybe it could be another source of this word. -- Tofra Talk contributions 20:56, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

JägerMonkey merge[edit]

I have seen there is an article JägerMonkey which is a stub. I think we don't need an own article for that. It should be merged with SpiderMonkey (JavaScript engine)#JägerMonkey. -- Tofra Talk contributions 21:06, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Agree: for the reason that the article JägerMonkey isn't very large. Nothing prevents a future split-away iff the JägerMonkey section becomes large later, but for now a separate article isn't needed. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 18:59, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Agree: and merged it --asqueella (talk) 19:32, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

C Programming Language backgrounds; Reference names[edit]

I wasn't sure how to incorporate this into the article as it just feels odd referencing a wiki with another wiki, but I wanted to make mention of how SpiderMonkey was originally written in C:

For many years, SpiderMonkey was written in C, and is gradually moving to C++. We still avoid many features such as run-time type information and virtual functions, but have come around to the glory of templates and namespaces relatively recently. ...

Also, there are two named references whose names don't refer to any previous citations. Might anyone know which citations "hunted" and "mozilla1" should refer to? Ender and Peter 00:57, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
