IMO, a "scripting language" is used to automate tasks that would

[Perhaps that definition should be extended to include tasks that
would otherwise by done by a human sitting and clicking on a GUI.]

IMO, neither one of those is replacing a person typing commands or
clicking buttons, so neither of those are "scripting" applications.
