xyzzy    
The {canonical} "magic word" from the {ADVENT}
adventure game, in which the idea is to explore an underground
cave with many rooms and to collect the treasures you find
there. If you type "xyzzy" at the appropriate time, you can
move instantly between two otherwise distant points. If,
therefore, you encounter some bit of {magic}, you might remark
on this quite succinctly by saying simply "Xyzzy!"
"Ordinarily you can't look at someone else's screen if he has
protected it, but if you type quadruple-bucky-clear the system
will let you do it anyway." "Xyzzy!" Xyzzy has actually been
implemented as an undocumented no-op command on several OSes;
in Data General's AOS/VS, for example, it would typically
respond "Nothing happens", just as {ADVENT} did if the magic
was invoked at the wrong spot or before a player had performed
the action that enabled the word. In more recent 32 bit
versions, by the way, AOS/VS responds "Twice as much happens".
See also {plugh}.

[{Jargon File}]

xyzzy: /X·Y·Z·Z·Y/, /X·Y·ziz´ee/, /ziz´ee/, /ik·ziz´ee/, adj. [from the ADVENT game] The canonical
magic word’. This comes from ADVENT,
in which the idea is to explore an underground cave with many rooms and to
collect the treasures you find there. If you type xyzzy at the appropriate time, you can move
instantly between two otherwise distant points. If, therefore, you
encounter some bit of magic, you might remark on
this quite succinctly by saying simplyXyzzy!”
Ordinarily you can't look at someone else's screen if he has
protected it, but if you type quadruple-bucky-clear the system will let you
do it anyway.” “Xyzzy!” It's traditional for xyzzy to
be an Easter egg in games with text
interfaces.Xyzzy has actually been implemented as an undocumented no-op command
on several OSes; in Data General's AOS/VS, for example, it would typically
respondNothing happens”, just as
ADVENT did if the magic was invoked at the wrong
spot or before a player had performed the action that enabled the word. In
more recent 32-bit versions, by the way, AOS/VS respondsTwice as
much happens”.Early versions of the popularminesweepergame under
Microsoft Windows had a cheat mode triggered by the command
xyzzy<enter><right-shift>’ that turns the top-left
pixel of the screen different colors depending on whether or not the cursor
is over a bomb. This feature temporarily disappeared in Windows 98, but
reappeared in Windows 2000.The following passage from The Wonderful Wizard of
Oz by L. Frank Baum, suggesting a possible pre-ADVENT origin,
has recently come to light: “Ziz-zy, zuz-zy, zik!” said
Dorothy, who was now standing on both feet. This ended the saying of the
charm, and they heard a great chattering and flapping of wings, as the band
of Winged Monkeys flew up to them.The text can be viewed at
Project Gutenberg.
