any scripting language is useful, sure. Perl is extremely common and versatile, you wouldn't regret learning it.

Perl has always been very heavily intertwined with Unix administration, while as IMHO Python is more of a mixed bag.

Python is very heavily used within RHEL and clons, I had to learn python due to not being able to install additioanl libraries in a secure environment I was working it. As Python is used in the system-config tools on EL6, there were many many more useful libraries installed for it, so was a good motivation to learn that as well.

Python. Also ace.

Hi,

i take advantage from this thread to ask you if ruby can be a good language to replace python in this field (sys admin).
