When reporting unspent outputs on an address, blockchain.info and the Electrum servers have a field called "script" and "raw_output_script", which are 200 bytes, but the wiki [1] documents scriptSigs which are much longer. How is the former generated?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Figured it out! It's the scriptPubKey, but with the OPs in their hex form.
