    I enjoy Java (over C++) for compiled languages.
    I thought that java was an interpreted language, not compiled? Isn't that what the JVM is for? And yes, I know you have to compile the bytecode, but it still has to be interpreted.

    Myuh.

    I usually consider it a compiled language, but you have a good point.

    I tend to think of compiled languages as being apps, and interpreted as being scripts.

    Oh well.

    Whichever classification they fall under, Java and Perl are my favorites :P.

    Maybe you're talking about Javascript? Java and Javascript are not the same. Don't get confused.

    Yes, I just said that because someone thought that Java was an interpreted language, which is not (I think).

    Anyway, I don't know much about programming so I could be wrong.

    Java is interpreted from bytecode you could argue that the bytecode is compiled but it is still an interpreted language thats what the JVM is for bytecode is not machine language like a real binary.

    Java bytecode does not run on any platform that I am aware of unless it is interpreted by the JVM.

    Hehe, I am well aware that Java and JavaScript are different :P.

    Java is an in-between language, in that you halfway compile it (into Java bytecode), but the rest is interpreted by the native VM that interprets Java bytecode into native assembly.

    This is why a Java program is essentially universal; it is independently on each architecture.
