Crystal vs VBScript: What are the differences?

What is Crystal? Fast as C, slick as Ruby. Crystal is a programming language that resembles Ruby but compiles to native code and tries to be much more efficient, at the cost of disallowing certain dynamic aspects of Ruby.

What is VBScript? An Active Scripting language that is modeled on Visual Basic. It is an Active Scripting language developed by Microsoft that is modeled on Visual Basic. It allows Microsoft Windows system administrators to generate powerful tools for managing computers with error handling, subroutines, and other advanced programming constructs.

Crystal and VBScript can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

Some of the features offered by Crystal are:

  • Ruby-inspired syntax.
  • Statically type-checked but without having to specify the type of variables or method arguments.
  • Be able to call C code by writing bindings to it in Crystal.

On the other hand, VBScript provides the following key features:

  • Typeless Variable Declaration
  • Runtime Execution
  • Similar Syntax to BASIC languages

Crystal is an open source tool with 14.4K GitHub stars and 1.11K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Crystal's open source repository on GitHub.
