Oh no. Just what we needed. Lament

C# is NOT a compiled language.

According to me C# is compiled. cdc.exe compiles C# source to MSIL code which is then JIT compiled to machine code whiche is the interpreted by the CPU. Dylan Borg (talk) 21:05, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Please divide the list to languages compiled to native code and compiled to bytecode, because it's confusing. C#, Java, Cobra are compiled to bytecode. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:11, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Java compiled?[edit]

Hello, would it be appropriate to say that Java is "compiled", in that sense that it is compiled to bytecode? Or is that too strong? I ask, because the article on Clojure says, near the end: "Clojure is a compiled language producing JVM bytecode"... Or am I nitpicking... Anyone know a *reference* for this phrasing?

Compiler language is a meaningless term[edit]

There can't be agreement on this. The list of languages that are compiled languages have so many in common with the list of languages that are interpreted languages. The problem is that the property is not in fact intrinsic to the language. This should be merged with the compiler page just as the interpreted language page should be merged with interpreter. Trying to state that there is such a thing as an interpreted or compiled language causes very really confusion in people who are trying to understand programming languages. -MM — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:43, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Agree, the term has no possible meaningful definition. This page should be deleted. (talk) 22:45, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
