They predate C++. They predate DOS and the x86 architecture. They 
existed during CP/M. DBASE II provided a scripted UI language which was 
interpreted at run time. Even found an example on-line.


So did RBASE and every other RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool.

The primary difference between first generation interpreted UI languages 
and QML is the early ones required a licensed version of the interpreter 
be previously installed on the target. With QML applications the engines 
are bundled in.
