scripting languages

I am currently working as a configuration manager on a quite a large project. Our development environment is on NT, but from unit testing onwards it will be UNIX.

I will need to write scripts to automate the process of migrating code from NT to UNIX, now since I am new to UNIX, I wasn't sure if there was any specific scripting language that I will need to use/will work the best for UNIX

hi there,

i'm also a stranger to unix. but, i understood that unix has its shell scripts. there are types of shells and for your purpose, imho, bourne shell or korn shell will be most suitable. the unix commands (or rather programming env) that excite me most are awk and sed. besides that you can always use perl.

mmmm...very academic huh? well i hope experts will reply to this.

I use Korn shell or perl. Korn shell is the most robust in terms of shell scripting. Perl is very powerful, but has a longer learning curve.
