Mathew, you'll find lots of programming and even CS texts, including 
contemporary ones, that talk about "interpreted vs. compiled".

However, as you have learned, these definitions are reviled on the 
Racket list and other CS places.

Every time someone who has read of these definitions asks which Racket 
is, they are admonished severely.  You are not the first, and you won't 
be the last.

There should really be a pararaph in one of the Racket manuals about 
this.  Then some people will read it and be pre-empted, and others can 
merely have have the URL pasted to them.
