in reply to C or C++ to go with Perl.

Myself being a Linux/windows sys admin for 9 years, I have never come across a use case which I could not do with Perl. As far as sysadmin stuff is concerned, I don't really see a point learning c/c++. I have been doing perl automation for quite long and still explore new features of perl every now and then. On windows, I have used VB/batch/powershell and was able to automate the things. There were however few instances where I had to use python (I am a python noob). Definitely there is no need to work on c/c++ for **sys admin stuff**.

[Discipulus]: ovedpo15 A subroutine may be called using an explicit & prefix. The & is optional in modern Perl... see perlsub in docs and search for ampersand
[Discipulus]: it has some, even dangerous, implication
[Discipulus]: I still use but I also attract many critics for this: I use when I call subs defined in the very same file, just to recognize them. You can avoid (but sometimes is needed)
[marto]: believe it or not this is a SPAM account :P
[Discipulus]: it seems a legitimate one.. grin ..
