Answers

In computer science, an interpreter is a computer program that directly executes, i.e. performs, instructions written in a programming or scripting language, without previously compiling them into a machine language program. An interpreter generally uses one of the following strategies for program execution:

  1. parse the source code and perform its behavior directly.
  2. translate source code into some efficient intermediate representation and immediately execute this.
  3. explicitly execute stored precompiled code made by a compiler which is part of the interpreter system.
