What do > and IN mean in the >IN name?

For comparison, in other names the greater-than sign apparently has the following meaning (when it does not mean greater-than).

In the words like >R and R>> means data moving direction, and R means the returns stack.

In the words like >NUMBER, D>S or >BODY> means conversion, and a word after the sign is a hint for the target value.
