Question!

There are two types of prefixes in the grpc source code: grpc and gpr_, it seems that the gpr_ prefix is used for internal functions, but what exactly does it stand?



Answers

"gRPC Portable Runtime." There's really nowhere that spells that out. There's only one comment in one PR that mentions it.

If you've ever heard of APR (Apache Portable Runtime), then it might not be too surprising.
