in reply to Other programming language I most often use

My other choice is for REBOL

REBOL can do many things (particularly those internet-related) in one-line while the same things can take 5-6 lines of Perl. Check them out and see.

Further, the language is simple enough that shell use of its functionality is the same as use from a running program.
