#187336 - I hate throwing objects in the cogs, but...
Responding to: Per Westermark's previous message
At the very bottom of everything there must be a compiled code specific for the hardware somewhere as:

Wikipedia says said:

Interpretation cannot be used as the sole method of execution: even though an interpreter can itself be interpreted, a directly executed programme is needed somewhere at the bottom of the stack.

Which would mean that for every interpreter out there, the interpreter itself must have some connection to the platform. So, it is not like you can develop a brand new platform and expect to run interpreted applications without getting some support from the vendor of the interpreter. Am I wrong on this?

I had some experience with an in house interpreter long ago, but that was a university professor project. Since then I just do not like the feel for them, as I am not into website development.
