Racket vs VBScript: What are the differences?

Developers describe Racket as "A general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language *". It is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language based on the Scheme dialect of Lisp. It is designed to be a platform for programming language design and implementation. It is also used for scripting, computer science education, and research. On the other hand, *VBScript** is detailed as "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.

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

Some of the features offered by Racket are:

  • Multi-paradigm
  • Object-oriented
  • Cross-platform

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

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

          Haskell
          Common Lisp
          Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs, influenced by the notation of Alonzo Church's lambda calculus. It quickly became the favored programming language for artificial intelligence (AI) research. As one of the earliest programming languages, Lisp pioneered many ideas in computer science, including tree data structures, automatic storage management, dynamic typing, conditionals, higher-order functions, recursion, and the self-hosting compiler.

          JavaScript
          JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
