My vote's for PERL, but it's obviously not for everyone or every situation. In my situation, as a network administrator, it's been invaluable in the past. And the fact that most network administrators are just that ("that" being network administrators), and not programmers, means PERL fits well because you don't have to be a complete evil genius to crank out some useful scripts. You can cook something up pretty quickly, and then get back to your life.

I'm seriously on-again-off-again with PERL. I won't touch it for months at a time, then there will be some migration project (like migrating away from MS-DNS to BIND, with 7k domains spread across 30+ DNS servers) and suddenly there's PERL, staring at me with that look on it's face that's saying "Now can I come out and play?"
