In compiler technology, ‘object code’ refers to the code generated by a 
compiler, containing the same semantical information as the ’source code’ that 
has been compiled, but in a form better suited for the task at hand. Quite 
often, the goal is execution by a physical or virtual processor.

This term was coined decades back, long long before the object orientation was 
invented in Sweden by the Simula-67 team (the class concept, grouping data and 
the operations that work on them), though… Hey, that was 51 years ago!

From this point of view, the Scheme data structures built by the LilyPond 
compiler are a form of object code: the semantical contents is the same 
hopefully as that of the LilyPond code, and it’s better suited to the 
production of nice scores.
