I've been wondering if java is any good at sysadm work on a routine bases,
or am I better off with perl/python, etc?

thanks

you are *way* better off with perl/python. of the two i prefer python,
but the choice is up to you. imo any language that requires compilation
is a poor choice for system adminstration...

plus java plain old sucks and file and string i/o.

I'm using Java for DB admin work since it is cross platform.
I can write a utility and know it can be used on any machine the team
members happen to be using.
