According to Wikipedia[1] a "scripting languages" are a subset of
"programming languages" so it goes that any "scripting language" is, be
definition, a programming language.  It also says that "scripting" is
not so much an attribute of the language, but an attribute of the
interpreter, so one could say that C++ is a "scripting language" if one
were to use a C++ interpreter.
