in thread When is a script an application

"Scripts need to interact either with other programs (often as glue) or with a set of functions provided by the interpreter, as with the file system functions provided in a UNIX shell and with Tcl's GUI functions."

That says more to me than any of the other babble, I usually divide script by "does it need anything other than libs to run?" in this case the perl interpreter. And yes I understand that you can "compile" perl into an executable, but really, that just bundles the enterpreter and the script into one package.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!
