Ok. can we use scripting languages for the same purpose as we use progrmng lnguags?
Thanks @Haris for the links...
Think of scripting language as a jpg on your disk while progtamming language as an exe on disk. Now what happens when you click exe, it loads directly in memory and has direct access to system resources. While when a jpg is clicked it is always opened in a client window (picture viewer) and jpg only has access to those system resources that are allowed through client window. Similarly a scripting languages like js always need a client (one client is browser) and has access to system resources allowed by browser. In case of programming language, operating system is directly reading the language while in case of scripting language a client is reading (interpreting) the language and then presenting it to operating system.
Which means for web applications we can use JS. that is why people use it with html.
Now I understand the whole story.
Well said @Michael other wise computer languages seems similar to one another.
@Pravin Pandey Happy to help. ☺
simple difference is that programming language are first compiled while scripting doesn't
Script languages are more limited in comparison to full programming languages.
@pravin did you check my Platinum code?
What would R be?
Full programming languages have a wider range of applications than scripting languages. Another difference is that Scripting languages are used to provide programming capabilities to other languages such as html
@Sylvia Holcer R is a scripting language for data analysis and reporting, its pretty much similar to MatLab in my opinion.
