What does the rc stand for in the names of configuration files? [duplicate]

Many tools in the modern JavaScript ecosystem name their configuration files ending in the letters rc. For example:

ES Lint -> .eslintrc.json

npm -> .npmrc.json

yarn -> .yarnrc

I know that these are configuration files.

The c most likely stands for configuration. What is the r in rc?

rc stands for run commands. More here
