### Where did RPN get its name?

Posted:

**Mon Aug 25, 2014 8:28 pm**My sincere apologies if this reflects an existing question or discussion, but I didn't find it when I searched the fora.

Where did the Reverse Polish Notation name come from? is there a Polish Notation that is not Reverse? Is there a Reverse Notation that is not, indeed, Polish?

I'd be keen to find out!
