Python Scripting

Python Scripting language

Scripting languages are considered to be programming languages. The main difference between this two is that programming languages are compiled, whereas scripting languages are interpreted. Scripting languages are slower than programming languages and usually sit behind them. Since they only run on a subset of the programming language, they have less access to a computer’s local abilities.
Python can be called a scripting language as well as a programming language since it works both as a compiler and an interpreter. A standard Python can compile Python code into bytecodes and then interpret it just like Java and C.
However, considering the historical relationship between the general purpose programming language and the scripting language, it will be more appropriate to say that Python is a general-purpose programming language which works nicely as a scripting language too.

The Python Interpreter
An interpreter is a program that reads and executes code. Common interpreters include Perl, Python, and Ruby interpreters, which execute Perl, Python, and Ruby code respectively. Interpreters and compilers are similar, since they both recognize and process source code. The Interpreter is a layer of software that works as a bridge between the program and the system hardware to keep the code running. A Python interpreter is an application which is responsible for running Python scripts. A Python Interpreter runs code in two ways—
  • In the form of a script or module.
  • In the form of a piece of code written in an interactive session.
