What the Fuck?

Display all acronyms

The “wtf” utility uses this acronyms database (gzipped for download), from NetBSD® but extended by many contributors including “wtfubar”, to expand acronyms and abbreviations for you. As of database CVS revision 1.824 (2021-11-16T23:39:32Z) (7.43 MiB uncompressed), 152369 expansions for 118563 unique acronyms are known. Note that there are © and licence claims on some databases this acronyms list includes.


Query the WTF acronym database

The wtf(1) utility is core to MirBSD. It is also available from my APT repository (for use with Debian®-based operating systems), as offline utility.

There are offline-capable Äpps for multiple operating systems as well: for Android, Jolla/SailfishOS and Blackberry Z10 users there’s a Free Äpp in F-Droid, by Natureshadow (source repo). An iOS äpp for iPhone users by Eugen¹ also exists. These download on first use the acronyms database and use it offline; the iOS äpp checks (and downloads) updates automatically while the Android äpp offers this in the menu (traffic-friendlier).

For the regular MirBSD online documentation (manpages, HTML and papers), we also offer a manual page search CGI.
