Scripting in general is creating/using a small piece of code to perform a required tasks. Scripts are usually interpreted not compiled.

In Cheat Engine, with the use of Auto Assemble you can write 10s to 100s or even a 1000s lines of instructions using either Assembly or Lua to be injected in a process memory to do some modifications. Auto Assemble is the IDE where you write your code and there is nearly no limitations, you have the choice to either mix your code using both Assembly and Lua or to use one of them.
