in reply to When is a script an application

My humble opinion: the difference is that an application is an open-ended set of tools for a certain purpose-- the user tells it when the user is done rather than the script running out of input data from STDIN or files and then ending. All Perl scripts are scripts, regardless of whether or not they are also applications.

    You're telling me that all those COBOL batch programs that I wrote back in the good old times aren't applications? ;-)
