Programming Language for Systems Administrator

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am Windows Systems Administrator(planning to migrate to Linux
administration in near future), I have occassionally written few batch
files and Vbscripts to automate my tasks.

Now I have strong interest to learn a programming language that would
help me to write Scripts or Application ( In Systems Administrative
point of view) .

I have read on net that Python is the best way to start of for beginers
, Please let me your suggestions and help me out to chose to the right
programming language to write scripts ranging from simple automation
scripts to appliations for my workflow.

I am confused to chose between C++,Python,Perl.

Thanks in Advance

Among the three, Python is probalby the simplest. Perl, while is popular
an has been around a while, is a bit more complicated (although you can
definitely use it in a simple fashion). C++ requires too much additional
work to get to the result.
