The print version of the Jargon File, titled "The New Hacker's Dictionary". It includes essentially all the material the File, plus a Foreword by Guy L. Steele, Jr. and a Preface by Eric S. Raymond. Most importantly, the book version is nicely typeset and includes almost all of the infamous Crunchly cartoons by the Great Quux, each attached to an appropriate entry. The first, second, and third editions correspond to versions 2.9.6, 3.0.0, and 4.0.0 of the File, respectively.
