Resource Script vs. Bot

Discussion in 'Tutorials & Resources' started by Arbiter, Mar 24, 2015.

  1. Sometimes I like to call bots scripts bots, because I heard someone else do it and never doubted them. But then a moderately intelligent fellow opened my eyes. He explained how the word script by definition excludes anything that is compiled instead of interpreted at runtime. I then went to Wikipedia, the world's wisest wizard, and here's what he had to say.

    From the little Java I've done in my short programming career, I know for a fact that Java is compiled (to an intermediate language at least) and therefore calling anything written in Java a script bot would be a horrible misnomer.

    The moderately intelligent fellow also explained how from a linguistic point of view "script bot" is highly ambiguous and could refer to many things: handwriting, a manuscript, a document, etc. As one aspiring to be a successful communicator and appeal to end users I realized the use of ambiguous words just makes my life harder.

    I resolve all these issues by replacing "script bot" from my vocabulary with "bot." Not only is bot not constrained to being interpreted at runtime, but now the end user knows exactly what my product does: it bots!

    My eyes have been opened. How about yours?

    P.S. It's a damn shame that the moderately intelligent fellow had to implement a keyword replacement on script bot to bot, because now my post is more difficult to read. At least it will help people better themselves.

  4. Hahahaaaa, nice one arbi. But you know i was faster ;)
     
  5. You must have had a free day for once, otherwise you wouldn't have posted this nonsense. And too be fair, bot is the more appropriate term.

  8. I still see "script bot" like a script bot for a movie, or see of procedure that follow each other, and I think the term comes from the original scripts bots that were written not as a real AI sort of problem solving, but as set of mouse movements and keystroke in a very specific order. It's a legacy term, but I think it better encompasses what it is referring to when compared to bot which is waaaaay too general, since people also use it to refer to the client.

    I think the best term with the way that current solutions work, would be borrowed from real AI terms: Agents. but whatevs.

  9. As a community whose primary mission is education it is our responsibility to politely correct people. RuneMate is a client, not a bot, because by itself it cannot bot (read: automate) anything. Calling a client a bot is another misnomer, but I'll save that crusade for another day.

    While I admire you for taking my point further, I fear agents may be taking it so far that we lose sight of the end-user (read: customer) who is not educated in the nomenclature of artificial intelligence.
     
  10. I still like to phrase it as being scripts bots since you write scripts bots that might be compiled to bots but whatever... Old habits die hard.

    Damn, it's being replaced... Preprocess nodes much?
     
  11. That would be understandable if it was at all possible to "write scripts bots" in Java. A .java file is not a script bot; it is source code.
     
  12. script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot script bot

    EDIT: This is weird. Y u do dis Arbiman88?
     
  13. That makes me rest my case though why would oracle state it as 'Java scripting' ...

    Nevermind, off to bed.
     
  14. Javascript is an entirely separate language that is in fact interpreted at runtime (most commonly by your browser).
     
  15. Does this apply for conscripts?

    Edit: no replace yet
     
  16. i call them scr1pts


    soz not soz arbi baby xoxoxox
     
  17. I agree, an Agent is the most accurate term we could use.

    Is this not exactly what a bot/script bot/whatever does?
