2. History

In this chapter we provide a brief history of the tools described in this book. You don't need to know this history in order to use the tools. However, the history of how the tools developed over time helps explain why the tools act the way that they do today. Also, in a book like this, it's only fair for us to credit the original authors and sources of inspiration, and to explain what they did.
