Recommended Scripting Language? - Page 4

post #31 of 32
Afaik scripting just used to mean macros that ran on the shell. These days pretty much all scripting languagesare fully functional programming languages.

Order for which i prioritize these.

  1. Python
  2. Ruby
  3. Groovy
  4. Tcl


Python is pretty huge. I see more and more stuff start to utilize it.
Ruby I see some stuff, not as widely used i feel.
Groovy I dont know anything about, so more likely its a bit of a niche scenario usage.
Tcl I have had to code with over the past few months and i personally don't care for it. I was writing some stuff to run on a cisco switch, and I was really annoyed when i found out that i cant run code Asynchronously. You basically queue functions to run. Either way, its just a single thread that cycles through. Also with the cisco stuff, you cant run 2 different tcl scripts at the same time. Once one ends, the next will start up.

You mentioned windows scripting... does that mean batch\cmd or Power Shell? Batch is fun and all, but PowerShell is amazing with what it can do. If the company does windows stuff, id recommend PowerShell. If not, Python.
