I want to ask why 'c' language should not have Interpreter. If we use an interpreter, what will happen? .

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

C is almost always compiled, not interpreted. Linux does have C compilers, gcc being the most popular (it’s the de facto standard).

    Why would you want a C-interpreter? For scripting? Why use C-syntax for scripting? Better to use Python, Ruby etc. The only valid reason, it seems to me, is to teach C (or C++). I remember Al Stevens writing Quincy for that purpose in 1994. CH and CINT are available as interpreters today.

    when we write a c program,it is compiled i.e, for example in turbo c we use alt +F9 to compile whereas ctrl+F7 to execute .then it is checked for runtime errors???
