This has probably been discussed to death, but what does RDNZL stand for?<br><br>Is it an abbreviation of "Redunzel" which wuld be a pun on "Rapunzel"?<br><br>Does it stand for "Ruth Doesn't Need Zappa Lyrics"?<br><br>WTF?

From: mdryden@cix.compulink.co.uk ("Martyn Dryden") ...  <br>I recall an FZ explanation based on the idea that if the Z were a 2 then it would be like the legend on a car's automatic transmission control, ie Reverse, Drive, Neutral, 2, Low. Who would guess it could inspire a song? No-one would guess. Sorry to say I've no documentation of that, though.

Thanks for the redirect, slime.<br><br>We can likely rule out the automotive reference, since no car that I know of has the letters in that order.  It's RND21 (ZL) or PRND21 (ZL) on every automatic tranny I ever saw.<br><br>There is a German website that has a download entitled "RDNZL" -- apparently some computer language.
