Open source Language Overview
  1. Complex language for rapid development when speed can be sacrificed for ease of modifications. Runs on virtually all platforms.
  2. Easy to program, best for tasks that would normally be performed at a command line such as system administration work or installing/maintaining programs.
  3. Provides high speed, secure code. Requires compilation.
  4. Good for interactive use, but rarely a good choice for programs because of poor programming functionality.
  5. Strong scripting language for system administration tasks that shell scripts cannot handle. Can use the Tk toolkit to provide a graphical interface.
  6. Object-oriented scripting language. Programs can include graphical interfaces.
