# So, what makes something a "scripting language" as opposed to a
# "programming language"?
In a general sense I think "programming" languages are compiled and
"scripting" languages are interpreted. (If you want to go academic,
you could say python is both, but the internals of the interpreter are
irrelavant insofar as one might say it is an interpreted language.)
