From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  PIP
  
      Peripheral Interchange Program.
  
     A program on CP/M, RSX-11, RSTS/E, TOPS-10, and OS/8
     (derived from a utility on the PDP-6) that was used for file
     copying (and in OS/8 and RT-11 for just about every other file
     operation you might want to do).  It is said that when the
     program was written, during the development of the PDP-6 in
     1963, it was called ATLATL ("Anything, Lord, to Anything,
     Lord"; this played on the Nahuatl word "atlatl" for a
     spear-thrower, with connotations of utility and primitivity
     that were no doubt quite intentional).
  
     See also BLT, dd, cat.
