Jim, by the way, what exactly does “C.” mean in your name? I mean, it’s so
ambiguous that it could mean anything!
Or is this an example of using a regular expression (you have a two-letter
last name?) as opposed to C* using a traditional wildcard “glob”?!
Maybe “C*” should be “C.*”.
Or maybe some people would prefer C8 or C7a– at least that would have
a chance of returning narrower Google search results than searching for

Yes you are correct, Cassandra is often abbreviated as C*. With
most languages and applications being referenced by their acronym /
abbreviation, I guess you just have to pick one that is available. I assume if
someone creates a new language and wants to name it C*, they will see that it is
taken and avoid the conflict.
