What is a Scripting Language?
A scripting language is a type of programming language that is designed to be interpreted by another program at runtime. Unlike compiled languages such as C++ or Java, which require a separate compilation step before execution, scripts are executed directly. This makes them more flexible and allows for rapid development and testing.
This interpretation process allows developers to quickly write and test code without having to go through an extensive compilation step. It also enables dynamic updates to websites, where changes can be made in real-time without requiring users to refresh the page.
