To me no, they are not interpreters like basic or java.
Java language have they own assembly language, I think they call javabyte, better, bytecode, a virtual processor inside a real processor. But this on past was called emulator.
Persons today don't know the difference between simulator and emulator :icon_exclaim:
I'd rather be this ambulant metamorphosis than to have that old opinion about everything
