Scripting Languages

scripting languagescript language, or extension language is a programming language that allows control of one or more app(lication).

Early script languages were often called batch languages or job control languages. They were created to make the 'edit-compile-link-run' process quicker.

"Scripts" are distinct from the core code of the application. They are often written in a different language from the core code and are often user controlled.

Scripts are often interpreted from source code, whereas the application is typically first compiled to the required machine code.

Some software incorporates the interpretation of several different scripting languages. Modern web browsers have several embedded languages for controlling the browser, including JavaScript.
