This is great advice. Having done a fari amount of scripting work in
both languages I would have to say it really comes down to what you
are comfortable with. My personal prefernce these days leans towards
Python, but I will still bust out a small regex script in perl, just
because its so fast to write. I would sit down with a very small
subset of what you want to do, and write a script in both to see which
one works better for you.
