            some, to make a figure like that of a dragon, whose
            belly is where there is the greatest latitude; the

Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  dragon n. [MIT] A program similar to a daemon, except that it is not
     invoked at all, but is instead used by the system to perform various
     secondary tasks. A typical example would be an accounting program, which
     keeps track of who is logged in, accumulates load-average statistics,
     etc. Under ITS, many terminals displayed a list of people logged in,
     where they were, what they were running, etc., along with some random
     picture (such as a unicorn, Snoopy, or the Enterprise), which was
     generated by the `name dragon'. Usage: rare outside MIT -- under Unix
     and most other OSes this would be called a `background demon' or
     daemon. The best-known Unix example of a dragon is `cron(1)'. At SAIL,
     they called this sort of thing a `phantom'.
