G \G\ (j[=e])
   1. G is the seventh letter of the English alphabet, and a
      vocal consonant. It has two sounds; one simple, as in
      gave, go, gull; the other compound (like that of j), as in
      gem, gin, dingy. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect]
      231-6, 155, 176, 178, 179, 196, 211, 246.
      [1913 Webster]

   Note: The form of G is from the Latin, in the alphabet which
         it first appeared as a modified form of C. The name is
         also from the Latin, and probably comes to us through
         the French. Etymologically it is most closely related
         to a c hard, k y, and w; as in corn, grain, kernel; kin
         L. genus, Gr. ?; E. garden, yard; drag, draw; also to
         ch and h; as in get, prehensile; guest, host (an army);
         gall, choler; gust, choose. See C.
         [1913 Webster]

   2. (Mus.) G is the name of the fifth tone of the natural or
      model scale; -- called also sol by the Italians and
      French. It was also originally used as the treble clef,
      and has gradually changed into the character represented
      in the margin. See Clef. G[sharp] (G sharp) is a tone
      intermediate between G and A.
      [1913 Webster]

3. The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003)
G
 pref.,suff.

    1. [SI] See quantifiers.

    2. The letter G has special significance in the hacker community, largely
    thanks to the GNU project and the GPL.

    Many free software projects have names that names that begin with G. The
    GNU project gave many of its projects names that were acronyms beginning
    with the word ?GNU?, such as ?GNU C Compiler? (gcc) and ?GNU Debugger?
    (gdb), and this launched a tradition. Just as many Java developers will
    begin their projects with J, many free software developers will begin
    theirs with G. It is often the case that a program with a G-prefixed name
    is licensed under the GNU GPL.

    For example, someone may write a free Enterprise Engineering Kludge package
    (EEK technology is all the rage in the technical journals) and name it ?
    geek? to imply that it is a GPL'd EEK package.


4. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018)

   University in 1988 which combines functional programming,
   object-oriented programming, relational, imperative
   programming and logic programming (you name it we got it).
