System admin here. Been thinking of learning one programming language that'll help me do a lot of system side stuff. So why ask the question here right? Well, I've been working on Perl and its going fine so far. Noticed that there are couple modules which happen to be written in C, BUT not sure. So I wanna learn either C or C++ so I can may be some day before I kick the darn bucket write a module for Perl.
Tried Python, and cant get my head wrapped around the whitespace stuff. I did a little C and C++ in college, but I need to chose one from it.
Which do you think will fit better for a sys admin kind of suff? C or C++ (Yes, I know, this is kinda premature...I am not even 1/10th good at Perl and y'all can speak Perl like your native tongue, but heck, I wanna learn one compiled Language that can help me write system side stuff, so either C or C++ its gotta be)
