 for raw mode
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  raw mode
   n.
  
      A mode that allows a program to transfer bits directly to or from an I/O
      device (or, under bogus operating systems that make a distinction, a disk
      file) without any processing, abstraction, or interpretation by the
      operating system. Compare rare mode, cooked mode. This is techspeak
      under Unix, jargon elsewhere.
