cg (programming language)

CG programming language, also known as C for Graphics, is a type of programming language used for creating visuals and graphics.

It's like giving instructions to a computer on how to draw pictures. Just like how you tell your friend to draw a picture of a cat by giving them specific instructions, CG programming language tells computers what to do to create graphics like shapes, colors, and textures on the screen.

CG language is used by game developers to create the characters, environments and everything else in video games. It's also used in film and animation to make special effects, and in scientific simulations to model real-life scenarios.

So, when you see a cool video game or an animated movie, it's because someone used CG programming language to make it look that way!
