Here's a not-serious field guide for choosing a scripting language.

Perl

Choose perl if you think that scripting is for quick-n-dirty tasks, and your language ought to look like it. Or if you like how it looks when Snoopy swears.

Ruby

Choose ruby if you think that perl is pretty cool, but it should be even more powerful.

Python

Choose python if you think naming your throwaway variables "spam" and "egg" is really witty. Or if you want to write really cool stuff. (No bias here, no sir!)

JavaScript

Choose javascript if you're cowboy hacker or a genius hacker (or both).

VBScript

Choose vbscript if there's no hope for you whatsoever.

Lua

Choose lua if you like squeezing into small spaces.
