Mills to Inches

I'm looking at new scopes and lots of them refer to mills instead of inches can someone tell me the difference between a mill and an 1/8" or 1/4"  at a hundred yards?

Thanks

As far as the US military is concerned, there are TWO different "mils", the "Infantry" mil, and the "Artillery" mil.   They are not much different, but SOMEWHAT different.   I forget which is which, but one is 1000x2xpi per circle, and the other is 6400 per circle.

Thank you, Chris!  It is the Artillery 'Mil' that has 6400 per circle.  (Comes from the French circa WWI when we were just figuring out modern artillery with the French 75.)
