Compiled-language

Any programming language that is primarily implemented by using a compiler, i.e

Interpreted-language

Questions about interpreted languages and program interpretation in general



Slower faster ball

Example

"Interpreted-language execution speed are slower than compiled-language true but once there is need for more speed you can call in compiled stuff through gems or micro services"

from question  

Is Ruby unsafe to use on Test Automation Projects?

"Mostly interpreted-language are a bit slower compared with compiled-language but i guess the difference is almost negligible in coffeescript javascript because of node.js"

from question  

Why compilers are written in C/C++ instead of using CoffeeScript (JavaScript, Node JS)?

"While ruby and python are both interpreted-language and operation-for-operation slower than compiled-language the reality is in executing an application only a small portion of cpu time is spent in your code and the majority is spent into the built-in libraries you call into which are often native implementations and thus are as fast as compiled code"

from question  

Best programming language for fast DB reads and fast local data structure manipulation

"An interpreted-language will typically run one to two orders of magnitude slower than a compiled-language"

from question  

Why are some programming languages faster than others?

"Interpreted-language tend to be but not always are significantly slower than compiled-language"

from question  

Steps carried out in case of INTERPRETER and COMPILER

"This makes interpreted-language generally slower than compiled-language due to the overhead of running the vm or interpreter"

from question  

Why is an interpreter slower than a compiler in practice?

"This is a good question but should be formulated a little different in my opinion for example why are interpreted-language slower than compiled-language"

from question  

Why are Interpreted Languages Slow?

"Fact is that interpreted-language like php are always slower than a compiled-language"

from question  

Is there any benchmark which compares PHP and JSP?

"Php is an interpreted-language so will run a little slower than a compiled-language"

from question  

Is there a point to minifying PHP?

"Naturally interpreted-language will run slower than compiled-language as compiled code can be ran blindly by the cpu where as compiled code needs to be checked ran line by line"

from question  

Why is client-side web still using an interpreted language?

"And perl like any interpreted-language is much slower than a compiled-language"

from question  

Loop through non-integer rows using SQL

"From what i know a compiled-language such as c++ is much faster than an interpreted-language such as javascript"

from question  

Using Google NaCl to read pixels off a canvas - is it worth it?

"In my general programming experience compiled c c++ programs generally run faster than most other compiled-language like java or even compiled python and almost always run faster than interpreted-language like uncompiled python or javascript"

from question  

What is the difference between Unity vs c++?

"That being said a compiled-language like c will almost always be faster than an interpreted-language like javascript"

from question  

Performance of a Javascript Front-End vs C Back-End

"It should be noted that interpreted-language are inherently many time slower than natively compiled-language"

from question  

* (no title is found for this review)

"A compiled-language will generally run faster than an interpreted-language so i think ruby and php start behind the eight ball but it really comes down to how you use a compiled-language and how you structure the code"

from question  

Scalability on the web

"Below are some differences between both technologies django is based on python which is scripting language interpreted-language so code is interpreted which is quite slower than compiled-language"

from question  

Django vs jsp for production scale applications

"If you wonder why this kind of vectorization is useful it is because a loop written by a compiled-language is faster than a loop written in an interpreted-language"

from question  

Does the term "vectorization" mean different things in different contexts?

Performance examples better

Example

"Writing in a compiled-language java or c++ in your examples would almost certainly give better performance than an interpreted-language like php"

from question  

Strictly server-side processing (no web browser interaction): is Java or PHP better for this scenario?

"Performance of programs in compiled-language is significantly better than that of an interpreted-language"

from question  

Speeding up a die roll simulation

Easier bytecode possible

Example

"An interpreted-language surely makes it easier but this is still entirely possible with compiled-language like c"

from question  

Classic interpreter language

"Are compiled-language better than interpreted-language or vice-versa"

from question  

Difference between compiled and interpreted languages?

"While java could be described as a compiled and interpreted-language it s probably easier to think of java itself as a compiled-language and java bytecode as an interpreted-language"

from question  

Programming Language Implementation

Performant level assembly

Example

"Then c which is one those languages closer to the processor level is very performant and generally speaking compiled-language because they turn your code into assembly language are more performant than interpreted-language"

from question  

Is RxJS faster than imperative?

"Interpreted-language are inherently less performant than compiled-language - c will generally outperform python - some operations more than others"

from question  

Programming at Intel?

Others

Example

Especially in an interpreted-language like php where classes add more overhead than a compiled-language

from question  

Wrapper for getter methods

Only interpreted-language can execute code at runtime;compiled-language cannot

from question  

Why can't I run commands by themselves in Swift?

Python is an interpreted-language so by definition is slower than other compiled-language but the drawback in the execution speed is not even noticeable in most of applications

from question  

Should I learn a cross-platform GUI language or go with a native?

This is usually seen in dynamic interpreted-language but is less common in compiled-language

from question  

Static vs dynamic type checking in C++

My guess is that in interpreted-language the efficiency benefit in using switch statements is indeed smaller than in compiled-language

from question  

If/Else and Switch efficiency comparison in interpreted languages

In c# this won t be so easy because c# is a compiled-language not an interpreted-language;in an interpreted-language it s fairly easy to parse raw-text as the language and see the results

from question  

C#: how do i create a program that will run code that i punch into a text box?

There are many discussions about compiled-language such as golang vs interpreted-language such as ruby but generally a compiled-language is faster because the compilation phase optimizes the code and because the target machine can natively run the program without the need to use an interpreter extra layer

from question  

How to execute this Go binary?

An interpreted-language must do this same translation at the same time it s trying to run the program;that typically slows it down though modern interpreters and virtual machines like to brag about how they can do a few things faster because they have the extra information that a compiled-language doesn t

from question  

How do you use compiled programming languages and scripting languages together?
