Programming and Scripting Language

What are the different between programming and scripting language, i searched in Google but i didn't find a real answer.

What do you think about that?

One of the most main differences between the both are...

Scripting languages are OFTEN interpreted meaning the code isn't directly turned into binaries and most scripting languages tend to be a abstract of a higher level

While a programming language often uses a compiler a compiler compiles the code directly to binaries which makes it faster.

Also scripting languages are often used for smaller tasks that can be written faster then writing it in a programming language which will waste more time and that's a major disadvantage to companies who want to job done as early as possible

that's why ALOT of games use C++ along with LUA

Ok Thank you

:D and forgot to mention the syntax of scripting languages are much easier to comprehend then a programming language.

Also Python can be used as a Programming and Scripting Language(Shows how powerful Python is yet so simple and easy to learn)
