About gambas, the word
(too old to reply)

*Warning: this is only a linguistic curiosity with no relation to Gambas,
the language.*

Entirely by chance, I came across the following definition and etymology
for gambas, the word:










*From Petit Robert 2007: gambasgambas [gɑ̃bas] nom féminin plurielétym.
répandu v. 1960; catalan gamba, du latin populaire cambarus, classique
cammarus, du grec kammarosv■ Grosses crevettes comestibles de la
Méditerranée. Gambas frites (è scampi), grillées. Brochette de gambas.▫
Rare Une gamba [gɑ̃ba].*
In Brazil, I never heard the word gamba. I never found it in written text.
Nevertheless, at least one Brazilian dictionary registers it as a Spanish
word only recently introduced into Portuguese. So, perhaps it is used in
Portugal.

Anyway, it is interesting to know that, in the end, it comes from Greek
"kammaros" that gave us the Portuguese "camarão" and the Italian
"gamberetto". Nevertheless, at the first sight, it is hard to see that
"gamba" and "camarão" come from the same Greek word.

It's a joke, I think. Searching for something that contains BAS, from
Basic. Why an animal I don't know. Benoit likes to eat prawns, I soppouse...

😁😁😁

There is the old meaning : Gambas Almost Means BASIC!

Many open source projects have animal name or logo. So I guess it's just
old tradition.

old tradition.
In fact the tradition for geek programmers in the unix world was to
find a recurssive acronym.

It means the Name is an acronym that contain the name itself

WINE = Wine Is Not Emulator

GAMBAS = Gambas Almost Mean BASic

So the logo of something looking a bit to a shrimp was a logical
choice... Well normally shrimps have not claws... but i find it give
an idea of super powerfull shrimp ;-)
