Scripting languages have taken over from object-oriented languages as flavour of the decade, mainly because of the power and flexibility they provide (even for non-expert programmers) for developing graphical user interfaces. Scripting languages are the basis of technologies on the World Wide Web, and office software suites such as Microsoft Office also rely heavily on them. This is the first book to survey a variety of the most important scripting languages, illustrating their use in a wide variety of application domains.
Suitable for Computer Science students taking courses on Scripting Languages, or Programming Language survey courses that emphasise Scripting languages. In addition, programmers and software engineers wishing to broaden their experience of modern programming languages, and techniques for user interface design.
