Originally, in 1994, the language was designed as a small set of binaries used to collect some basic site traffic data. In 1997 the parser was rewritten by two Israelis and the name was changed to the current acronym - it being determined that hypertext preprocessor was a decidedly more acceptable name in the business world. s for C++ developers.
