The scripting language is usually run from files containing the source code of the program that will be interpreted. Historically, they were created to shorten the traditional process of developing edition-compilation-publishing links-execution specific to compiled languages. The first languages were often referred to as "Job Control Language" (JCL) because they simply made it possible to automate a succession of simple commands, in the manner of a theater "script". Subsequently, they were provided with conditional executions, and finally with loop orders and operators transforming them into quasi-programming languages.
