Lynx is not a programming language but I think you are referring to the web browser Lynx. I can provide information on both:
- As a web browser: Lynx is an open-source text-only web browser designed for character-mode terminals. It lets users access internet content without supporting graphics, making it useful for those with slow internet connections or who rely on screen readers. The browser displays websites in plain text and can be controlled through its command line user interface.
- As a programming language: Lynx is also the name of an old scripting language used with the Call of Duty gaming series. The language lacks some features found in more modern programming languages but may still be used for game scripting and modding within the limitations of older game engines. Players can use it to create custom experiences and levels within games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: World at War.
