The Unix toolkit was created in the 1970s and is a mainstay to this day.
Miller is written in plain C, and its look and feel adheres closely to the
classic toolkit style:
if this were music, Miller would be a tribute album. Likewise, since commands
are subcommands of the
mlr executable, the result is a band, if
you will, of command-line tools. Put these together and the namesake is another
classic product of the 1970s: the
Steve Miller Band.
