how would you know what the right tool for the job is?
Well, usually, you pick the right tool from what you already know. Only if that does not work, then you should seek another language, while making sure you like the syntax and philosophy, etc.
Take me and PHP, for example. At the time I became frustrated with it for lack of readily-available libraries from a central repository, I knew QBasic(bah) and JavaScript. None of those two had anything like CPAN(although I did find JSAN earlier this year), so I stumbled across Perl. And I liked it. So, here I am, using Perl for all my little hacks and a little something I'm writing at the moment.
