A script or scripting language is a computer language with a series of commands within a file that is capable of being executed without being compiled. Good examples of server-side scripting languages include Perl, PHP, and Python. The best example of a client side scripting language is JavaScript.

Basically, all scripting languages are programming languages. The theoretical difference between the two is that scripting languages do not require the compilation step and are rather interpreted. For example, normally, a C program needs to be compiled before running whereas normally, a scripting language like JavaScript or PHP need not be compiled.

A scripting or script language is a programming language for a special run-time environment that automates the execution of tasks; the tasks could alternatively be executed one-by-one by a human operator. ... for a particular environment; in the case of scripting an application, it is also known as an extension language.

Hi Friends,
In today’s programming clime, the term “scripting” is no longer useful. In the past, scripting languages were interpreted rather than compiled; they were used for simple “scripting” tasks.

However, today, languages like Python, JavaScript, Ruby, and Perl are used for all manner of programming. And even languages you wouldn’t think of as scripting languages, like Golang and Pharo, are often used for scripting.

So let’s lose the “scripting” moniker. It’s antiquated and meaningless.
