A fragment program is a "pixel shader". Also sometimes reffered to as a "fragment shader" because it shaders per fragment (which is a pixel).

Remember, a pixel shader (in DX speak) is an actual program which does per-pixel computations, and is done in the programmable pipeline.

Also, a vertex program is a "vertex shader".
