From Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) [jargon]:

  2 infix. In translation software written by hackers, infix 2 often
     represents the syllable _to_ with the connotation `translate to': as in
     dvi2ps (DVI to PostScript), int2string (integer to string), and
     texi2roff (Texinfo to [nt]roff). Several versions of a joke have floated
     around the internet in which some idiot programmer fixes the Y2K bug by
     changing all the Y's in something to K's, as in Januark, Februark, etc.
