Whether scripting language or compiled language, you have to write the 
same code in both cases. Where is the difference?

The only advantage for scripts is that the source code is directly 
visible and cannot be hidden. But that can also be a disadvantage.

Nevertheless, I don't see any use in InstantFPC. The program starts much 
faster if it has already been compiled and there is no need to compile 
the source in the background before startup.
