The distinction is semantic.   Traditionally, compiled executables
(binaries) are called programs, and interpreted programs are usually
called scripts.   In the context of CGI, the distinction has become
even more blurred than before.   The words are often used interchangably
(including in this document).   Current usage favours the word "scripts"
for CGI programs.
