Response to: What about the alternatives?

Yes, that is correct. I almost listed the languages in the first paragraph, but decided not to. Philip Rinehart, who shared the presentation with me "Migration to Mac OS X, A Case Study of Higher Education Institutions," uses Python and he likes it. Even though I have never used it, I would like to add it to the side by side comparision of common script tasks that I wrote for AppleScript, Perl, and shell. I think comparing one language that you know to a new one is a way good way to start learning a new language.
