Scripting is a type of programming language.

Programming language is an artificial language that can be used to control the behavior of a machine, particularly a computer.

Scripting language is a programming language that controls a software application.

A programming language must be compiled into executable code before it can run. The source code cannot be run directly.

A scripting language's source code is ran directly, or it is interpreted (compiled on-the-fly). Because of this, code written in scripting language runs many times slower than code compiled with a "true" programming-language.

Scripting is a high-level programming language, whereas, for example, C is a low-level programming language.

As per my understanding of interpreted language is scripting(interpreted) language is the language which can executed by CPU straight away without any need of compilation are classified as scripting language

Now if i take example of JavaScript , it does not requires explicit compilation from developer. But browser which interprets actually converts it in to machine instruction which CPU can execute.

So in a way it is also a compiled language though compilation is not required by developer explicitly but browser does it internally. Is n't it ?

Same is the case with PHP.
