Where do you draw the line between "compiled" and "interpreted"? Perl, Java, and older VB among others are compiled to an intermediate code which is then executed by an interpreter.

By the compiled/interpreted definition, VB programmers 5 years ago were writing "scripts" which, when compiled in a recent version, are now "programs".

Come to think of it, some mainframes use microcode to execute machine instructions. The microcode is an "interpreter" for the machine's assembly language. Guess that makes all those big COBOL programs scripts, not applications :)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
