A glue language is a programming language (usually a scripting language) used for connecting software components together.

Examples of glue languages:

Extended macro languages which are exposed to operating system components and those of other programmes including Visual Basic for Applications, WordBasic, LotusScript, CorelScript, PerfectScript, Hummingbird Basic and QuickScript, SaxBasic and WinWrap Basic as well as other tools like awk can also be considered glue languages, as can any language implemented by an ActiveX WSH engine (VBScript, JScript and VBA by default in Windows and third-party engines including implementations of Rexx, Perl, Tcl, Python, XSLT, Ruby, Delphi, &c) A majority of applications can access and use operating system components via the object models or its own functions.

Other devices like programmable calculators may also have glue languages; for example the TI-92 by factory default can be programmed by a Command Script language and a Basic variant known as TI-Basic, and the HP-48 series as well as all other HP calculators can be programmed in multiple on-board languages. Most scientific and other advanced calculators can be programmed, with keystroke macros and derivatives of Basic predominating and others inlcluding languages based on Lisp, assembly language; some programmers are working to implement some of the above glue languages such as Perl, Rexx, WInNT shell, Unix shell, DOS-Win95-OS/2 batch and others.
