Scripting language Jobs
A scripting language or script language is a programming language that supports the writing of scripts, programs written for a software environment that automate the execution of tasks which could alternatively be executed one-by-one by a human operator. Environments that can be automated through scripting include software applications, web pages within a web browser, the shells of operating systems, and several general purpose and domain-specific languages such as those for embedded systems. Scripting is usually a property of the primary implementations of a language, although many languages are not very suited to this kind of implementation. Typically, a scripting language is characterized by the following properties: ⁕Ease of use. Scripting languages are intended to be very fast to pick up and author programs in. This generally implies relatively simple syntax and semantics. ⁕OS facilities - especially filesystem and related, built in with easy interfaces. Scripting is usually aimed at desktops, limiting the portability needs of the pre-built libraries. ⁕Interpreted from source code - to give the fastest turnaround from script to execution. On a desktop, the performance of even a slow interpreter is often non-problematic. In comparison, non-scripting languages intended for large programs are often precompiled in at least some sense for superior performance.
