HLSL

HLSL is the High Level Shading Language for DirectX. Using HLSL, you can create C like programmable shaders for the Direct3D pipeline.

HLSL was created starting with DirectX 9 to set up the programmable 3D pipeline. You can program the pipeline with a combination of assembly instructions, HLSL instructions, and fixed-function statements.
