In my opinion, The high level languages like basic, c, c++, fortran etc are the software to achieve system oriented programming approach. And when coming to Scripting like python, php, perl etc are the software to achieve application and web oriented and many components are available to do scripting language. The high level language has no components that even has to be written by the developer. Thats why embedded projects are done in high level languages. Scripting language is something userfriendly.
