I want to learn a scripting language. I want something more advanced than bash (which I already use extensively).
Python, Ruby or Perl? Why?
Ruby if you plan on using it for web stuff, Python if you plan on using it for anything else.
Because turns out Ruby isn't as good as everyone thought it was, but still has the best tools for anything web-related, Rails in particular. Python is good at almost everything, while perl is... perl.
>it has better implementations
What the fuck does that even mean for a scripting language? If the difference in performance between Ruby and Python are large enough to matter for your project, then you shouldn't be using either of them anyway.
