Thanks. A compiler 'compiles', while a interpreter 'executes', can there be more insight about the two kinds of programs, like their types are different?

Maybe a constraint should be added here: transform state machine X to state machine Z, without the aid of an existing 3rd machine. This is the case when X is completely new, no compiler or interpreter ever exist so far.
