Scripting programming languages (commonly called scripting languages or script languages) are computer programming languages designed for "scripting" the operation of a computer.
Many languages for this purpose have common properties: they favor rapid development over efficiency of execution; they are often implemented with interpreters rather than compilers; and they are strong at communication with program components written in other languages.
Scripting languages are often designed for interactive use, having many commands that can execute individually, and often have very high level operations (for example, in the classic UNIX shell (sh), most operations are programs themselves).

Prototype-based programming is a style and subset of object-oriented programming in which classes are not present, and behavior reuse (known as inheritance in class-based languages) is done by cloning existing objects which serve as prototypes for the new ones.

 ECMAScript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ECMAScript is a scripting programming language, standardized by Ecma International in ECMA-262 specification.
The language is widely used on the web and is often referred to as JavaScript or JScript, although those two terms have more specific meaning.
The Mozilla implementations, (SpiderMonkey in the C programming language and Rhino in the Java programming language), are used in several third-party programs, including Konfabulator and the Macintosh system-level scripting language JavaScript OSA.

 Object-oriented programming - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In procedural languages, OOP often appears as a form where data types are extended to behave like a type of an object in OOP, very similar to an abstract data type with an extension such as inheritance.
In recent years, object-based programming has become especially popular in scripting programming languages, with abstraction, encapsulation, reusability, and ease of use being the most commonly cited reasons, (the value of inheritance in these languages is often questioned).
Object-oriented programming developed as the dominant programming methodology during the mid-1980s, largely due to the influence of C++, an extension of the C programming language.

 ECMAScript programming language - Wikipedia
Netscape Communications originally developed the language under the name "LiveScript" but then renamed it to "JavaScript" and gave it a syntax closer to that of the Java programming language developed by Sun Microsystems at roughly the same time Netscape was including support for Java technology in its Netscape Navigator browser.
ECMAScript is an object-oriented scripting language that connects through interfaces called Document Object Models (DOMs) to applications, especially to the server side (web servers) and the client side (Internet browsers) of internet applications.
The primary data structure is an associative array similar to hashes in the Perl programming language.

 Generational list of programming languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here, a genealogy of programming languages is shown.
Languages should be categorized under the ancestor language with the strongest influence.
Of course, any such categorization has a large arbitrary element, since programming languages often incorporate major ideas from multiple sources.

 Object-oriented programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
An object-oriented programming language is one that allows or encourages, to some degree, object-oriented programming methods.
Though Simula (1967), a language created for making simulation programs, was probably the first language to have the primary features of an object-oriented language, Smalltalk is arguably the canonical example, and the one with which much of the theory of object-oriented programming was developed.
Some languages include abstract data type support, but not all of the features of object orientation (eg, Modula-2 which provided excellent encapsulation and information hiding).

 Articles - Object-oriented programming language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
OO languages can be grouped into several broad classes, determined by the extent to which they support all features and functionality of object-orientation and objects: classes, methods, polymorphism, inheritance, and reusability.
Languages called "Pure" OO languages, because everything in them is treated consistently an object, from primitives such as characters and punctuation, all the way up to whole classes, prototypes, blocks, modules, etc. They were designed specifically to facilitate, even enforce, OO methods.
Languages that are historically procedural languages, but have been extended with some OO features.

This annex describes the ECMAScript programming language that enables Script nodes (see 6.40, Script) to interact with VRML scenes.
ECMAScript is a general purpose, cross-platform programming language that can be used with ISO/IEC 14772 to provide scripting of events, objects, and actions.
Since ECMAScript is an untyped language it has no language constructs to describe the types of parameters passed to, or values returned from, functions.

 Growing a Language: A Conversation with Guy Steele
It's important to keep the correct programs at some distance from each other, so that mistakes are less likely to turn one program into another correct program that isn't the one you wanted.
Designing a good programming language isn't just a matter of throwing together a set of features; it's a matter of establishing important principles that the programmer can rely on.
Here are four examples of important principles in the Java language: local variables are private, you can't violate the type system, the evaluation order goes from left to right, and the "equals" method is symmetric and transitive.

It is also possible to specify the scripting language for each individual 'script' or 'handler' elements by specifying a type attribute on the 'script'/'handler' elements.
Scripting languages (such as ECMAScript) that have a notion of a "global scope" or a "global object" must have a single global object associated with the document (unique for each DOM Document node).
Declarative event handling in SVG 1.1 was hardwired into the language, in that the developer was required to embed the event handler in the element syntax (e.g.

Shader programs, such as vertex and pixel shaders, can be written and compiled in HLSL rather than the various hardware shader assembly languages.
In compiled languages, such as C++ and Java, this is the set of instructions which the programmer types and edits.
In most languages, constants are not much use, as you may be required to gather user input, or change various states of the program.

The initial "www" program at CERN only displayed text, but later browsers such as Pei Wei's Viola (1992) added the ability to display graphics as well.
Another significant advance in the technology was Sun Microsystems Java programming language, which enabled web servers to embed small programs (called applets) directly into the information being served that would run on the user's computer, allowing faster and richer user interaction.

 XML.com: On Folly
The topics of XML-oriented programming languages and the Semantic Web have been targets of mockery in their time, so this week I'm asking whether the true believers might be right.
The adapation or creation of programming languages for the processing of XML has long been a theme of discussion in the XML world.
Bray's first objection to XML-oriented programming languages was, "If this hasn't happened after decades in the relational world, why would we expect it to happen in the XML world?" Champion put the complementary case that the main route explored in solving the relational impedance mismatch had been object-oriented database systems, largely considered as failures.

 Recommendations for Modifications to the ECMAScript Language Specification
The ECMAScript Specification is unnecessarily restrictive in the limitations on the use of reserved words.
ECMAScript has powerful reflection capabilities, but there is a blind spot with respect to functions.
Because ECMAScript is weakly typed, the programmer is sometimes required to add instructions for checking operands before performing operations that could fail, particularly in trying to do member operations on non-objects.
