Programming Language for Systems Administrator

Discussion in 'C++' started by Kanthi Kiran Narisetti, Apr 11, 2005.

  1. 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.
