What is JScript?
Thus, both languages are similar in a way that they are client-side scripting languages. Both are used for making the boring and dull web pages as interactive and dynamic. Both are based on ECMAScript (European Computer Manufacturer’s Association) standard.
The main differences to be noted in their functionality are as follows:
- Conditional Compilation: JScript supports conditional compilation. This allows the programmer to execute the codes written within block comments selectively. This feature is no longer supported starting from Internet Explorer 11.0.
Both languages are similar when used as scripting languages. They differ in the means they provide to perform a particular task.
