What is the difference between scripting language and programming language?

Scripting languages code are interpreted at run-time. This means that every time we want to run the program, a separate program needs to read the code, interpret it, and then follow the instructions in the code. (eg. PHP, ASP, JSP, JavaScript, VBScript etc.)

Programming language code are compiled before it is run. Once it is compiled, it can run any number of times. Because compiled code are already been interpreted into machine language, so it is typically faster than scripting language. (eg. C, C++, C# etc.)
