[NBLUG/talk] Perl vs other scripting methods

Some years ago when I was working as a DBA, I used Perl to do things 
like nightly backups.  But time has flown by and I have not used Perl in 
over 15 years and now need to write some simple scripts.  Should I break 
out the Perl book (I assume it would still be good enough) or should I 
learn another scripting language?  As I recall, Perl and Php are similar 
and I am fairly proficient with Php.
