Scripting comparisons

168 bytes added, 08:42, 18 October 2008
Clojure is not scripting, but compiles to bytecode
<p>As an advantage, each jython script executes within its own namespace and instance of the interpreter, whereas clojure scripts run all within a unique static interpreter and thus share the namespace.</p>
<p>The javascript version (at least, the naive code pasted below) is very much java-like. Each script runs on its separate thread and namespace, like jython scripts.</p>
<p>To remark here that [http://clojure.org Clojure] is <b>not</b> a scripting language: Clojure compiles directly the JVM byte code, and thus runs at native speed.</p>
