What is Interpreter ?
- Interpreter Takes Single instruction as input .
- No Intermediate Object Code is Generated
- Conditional Control Statements are Executes slower
- Memory Requirement is Less
- Every time higher level program is converted into lower level program
- Errors are displayed for every instruction interpreted (if any)
- The interpreter can immediately execute high-level programs, thus interpreters are sometimes used during the development of a program, when a programmer wants to add small sections at a time and test them quickly.
- In addition, interpreters are often used in education because they allow students to program interactively.
Examples of Programming Languages Using Interpreter :
(defun convert () (format t "Enter Fahrenheit ") (LET (fahr) (SETQ fahr (read fahr)) (APPEND '(celsisus is) (*(- fahr 32)(/ 5 9)) ) ) )
CLS INPUT "Enter your name: ", Name$ IF Name$="Mike" THEN PRINT "Go Away!" ELSE PRINT "Hello, "; Name$; ". How are you today?" END IF
