So when I ask about classification, I'm kinda expecting results about the way Snap! works. Like is it an interpreted language, or compiled language, or a mix of both, or neither?
it's an interpreted language because it doesn't compile the project before running, it reads the code as it runs.
It's an interpreted language...?
Didn't know that. Is it really?
oh, and also, you can edit the code while the project is running, which wouldn't be possible if it were compiled.
It's interpreted except for the experimental feature of compiling the function input to the higher order functions.
We have a very, very partial attempt at compiling only code inside a WARP block (because that's the code you want to run fast) that we're playing with (done by a Berkeley student). But it's still in kind of sketchy condition so don't expect it soon!
