Both Compiler and Interpreter work to convert high-level language to machine understandable code and then back to high-level code, but there are some differences in their working.
Difference between Compiler and Interpreter are:
|It considers the completion of your program as input for converting to machine code.||It considers 1 statement in your program at a time as input for converting to machine code.|
|It usually generates intermediate code in the form of the object file (.obj).||It doesn't create an intermediate object (.obj) code.|
|Faster execution of control statements as compared to the interpreter.||Slower execution of control statements as compared to the compiler.|
|Detected errors in the program get displayed after the entire program is read by compiler.||Detected errors in the program get displayed after each instruction read by the interpreter.|
|Example: C++, Java.||Example. BASIC, Python, PHP.|
