Scripting language



language
(Or “glue language”) A loose term for any language that is weakly typed or untyped and has little or no provision for complex data structures. A program in a scripting language (a “script”) is often interpreted (but see Ousterhout’s dichotomy).
Scripts typically interact either with other programs (often as glue) or with a set of functions provided by the interpreter, as with the file system functions provided in a UNIX shell and with Tcl’s GUI functions. Prototypical scripting languages are AppleScript, C Shell, MS-DOS batch files and Tcl.
