The name "iota" has sometimes been used to indicate an increasing sequence of integers even in languages other than APL. In the [[wikipedia:C++|C++11]] standard library, <source lang=c++ inline>std::iota()</source> fills an iterator with such a sequence, and was named after the APL glyph.<ref>cppreference.com.
