What does "jPCT" stand for?

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I've tried searching and have not found an answer. Has no one asked this before? I'm assuming the "j" in "jPCT" is for "Java" but what's "PCT" :?:

Well, it's not really a secret... :wink: The name comes from the name PCT, which was the name of a DOS-based engine that i've once written. The j stands, as you have guessed correctly, for Java. PCT stands for Perspective Correct Texturemapping. That's all...plain and simple...

So "Java Perspective Correct Texturemapping" :o . I would've never been able to derive "Java 3D Engine" from that. Good thing you write "jPCT - a free 3D engine for JAVA" in the title of the forum and jPCT site  :D
