Third Advantage of Script Languages

Since scripting does not require a complicated Integrated Development Environment (IDE), such as those used by Visual Basic and C++ programmers, a scripting language is generally easier to learn. For a person new to software construction, scripting can be a great entryway into the vast world of programming. Scripting languages are generally more forgiving then compiled languages, and, as I've mentioned, they're ideal for automating simple tasks. VBScript, with its roots in the BASIC programming language, is especially easy for a non-programmer to learn.
