There must be a few C/C++ programmers on here.

We use a web-back-end management system that occasionaly throws a "SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR"

And well.. it's name is Content Server, and we thought perhaps the "SC" was a sly reference to 'CS' working the wrong way (reverse the letters), yah ok... that was dumb.

But now I'm reading through the ASPI specs, and I'm seeing the same thing all over...

SC_EXEC_SCSI_CMD
SC_GET_DEV_TYPE
etc...

So now I'm thinking SC_ means something. Is it Hungarian Notation I haven't heard of?

Here's one that might be useful.

My guess is just "Status Code".
The SC prefix is used throughout the servlet API for the numeric return codes used in the HTTP protocol, and the various HTTP RFCs allways refer to these numbers as "status codes".

It looks like a holdover from C/Unix kernel code; that one is a reduction of sysconf() in Solaris, which of course stands for System Configuration.
 
Look! I laid an egg! Why does it smell like that? Tiny ad, does this smell weird to you?
