what is the difference between a compiler and and interpreter?
is the interpreter used for C ?

  • computer -

    A compiler translates code from a source language (e.g. C, C++, Java) to a target language, which can then be executed by a (virtual or physical) machine.

    An interpreter reads code in an interpreted language (e.g. PHP, Perl, JavaScript) and directly executes the contained instructions.

    Not really. Well, for example the format string of printf is interpreted in run-time.
