Pinned topic Unsure of which scripting language to use?

‏2011-10-14T20:16:01Z |
Hi,

I'm using CentOS 6 & have a requirement to extract some data from MySQL (based on date) & place it in a text file, this file then needs to be FTP'd via a VPN link. Can anyone suggest which scripting language(s) would be most suitable, any other help would be greatly received?

Thanks,
Jason

    Python and Perl both have great modules you can use to make connecting to a database easy.

    You could also just do it in bash too. I've had the best success with perl.
