What is Scripting Language?
A scripting language or script language is a programming language that supports scripts, programs written for a special run-time environment that can interpret (rather than compile) and automate the execution of tasks that could alternatively be executed one-by-one by a human operator.
Types Of Scripting Languages:
Specialised scripting languages include:
Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language).
This is a popular string processing language for writing small scripts for system administrators and web site maintainers. Much web development is now done using Perl.
Hypertalk is another example. It is the underlying scripting language of HyperCard.
Lingo is the scripting language of Macromedia Director, an authoring system for develop high-performance multimedia content and applications for CDs, DVDs and the Internet.
AppleScript, a scripting language for the Macintosh allows the user to send commands to the operating system to, for example open applications, carry out complex data operations.
VBScript, a cut-down version of Visual Basic, used to enhance the features of web pages in Internet Explorer.
Characteristics Of Interpreted Languages:
☛ makes them easy to learn and use
☛ assumes minimum programming knowledge or experience
☛ allows complex tasks to be performed in relatively few steps
☛ allows simple creation and editing in a variety of text editors
☛ allows the addition of dynamic and interactive activities to web pages
