A file (usually text) that details such actions as how to brew nitroglycerin and other destructive things; the name is most likely inspired by the venerable _Anarchist Cookbook_, which deals with explosives and makes references to militant anarchism and anarcho-nihilism.
From Greek, "a," meaning nobody, and "-archy," meaning "rule." The "n" is in there because it's too hard to pronounce "aarchy."
