I believe that the script is compiled when it is loaded.
SoT: You'd be happy, too, if you were such a clever spider.
Ephesos: In conclusion, yarr.

The game then acts like a scripting engine, loading the scripts as it needs to and compiling them to bytecode in real-time. This is how most script languages (Python, PHP, prolly perl, etc) work.

I was reading Scripting language and Softcoding. I understand that none of this actually matters to an end user, but I'm curious about why Jeff's doing things this way.

What is Jeff doing? He may not mind script cheaters at all, I have never seen any evidence that he minds.

The advantage of using a custom scripting language is that it can be designed specifically to make it easy to do the kinds of task you want to do for a specific project, rather than wrestling with the complexity of a full general-purpose programming language. It also makes it easy to make small changes to the game during design and testing without having to recompile it every time.
