Thanks to Dani for adding Python to the scripting languages category!
...I haven't heard many people mention Python around here... Am I the only Python fan here? I know its usage isn't as widespread as Perl, but it is, IMHO, as powerful and useful as Perl, for general scripting, web scripting, and for administration.
I'm not up on the intracacies (sp?) of Python, but I'd like to hear some opinions from those of you who have used it, work with it, or heard some guy talking about it once. So far, I've found it to be a really fun, flexible scripting language, and I've been able to do some pretty nifty little tasks with Python that would have taken a little more time to do in say, a shell script.
