What is a Scripting Language?
A scripting language, also known as an interpreted language, is a programming language that executes scripts. Unlike compiled languages such as C++ or Java, which require compilation before execution, scripts are executed directly by an interpreter without the need for compilation.
Scripting languages are often used in situations where rapid development and ease of use are more important than raw performance. They are commonly used for tasks such as automating repetitive tasks, creating dynamic web content, and prototyping ideas quickly.
Variables can hold values of any type and can be reassigned with different types of values at runtime.
