Hello to all geeks out there, i was just wondering which scripting language out there is capable of achieving everything a scripting language is supposed to do. I know there is no such thing as "best" in software development circles but just wanted to know from all the experienced people out there.
I have heard of many like PERL, Python, LUA, PHP etc.
I just wanted to make sure to learn the most versatile langauge which can achieve the functions all other scripting langugages can and at the same time is a life time investment of time.
I dont mind the difficulty which i would be facing while learning the langugage, the only criteria is that I just want to learn the most powerful and versatile scripting language.
Thanks in advance for your help and support.
