From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Pi \Pi\ (p[imac]), n. [Gr. pi^.]
      1. A Greek letter ([PI], [pi]) corresponding to the Roman
            letter {P}.
  
      2. Specif.: (Math.) The letter [PI], [pi], as used to denote
            the number or quotient approximately expressing the ratio
            of the circumference of a circle to its diameter; also,
            the quotient or the ratio itself. The value of the
            quotient pi, to eight decimal places, is 3.14159265. The
            quotient pi cannot be expressed as a root of an algebraic
            equation; and from this fact follows the impossibility of
            the quadrature of the circle by purely algebraic
            processes, or by the aid of a ruler and compass.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   PI
  
      An interface between {Prolog} {application program}s and the
      {X Window System} that aims to be independent from the
      {Prolog} {engine}, provided that it has a {Quintus} {foreign
      function} interface (e.g. {SICStus} and {YAP}).   It is mostly
      written in {Prolog} and is divided in two libraries: Edipo -
      the lower level interface to the {Xlib} functions; and
      Ytoolkit - the higher level user interface toolkit.
