General Development If you don't want to commit to the idiosyncrasies of a specific shell running on a particular platform, try the Squirrel Shell. The Squirrel Shell provides an advanced, object-oriented scripting language that works equally well on UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows systems. Write a script once, and run it anywhere.

Personnaly I'll choose perl, because it stays true to it's root as a glue scripting language, and not a language that tries to do everything (but that's like speaking about choosing between orange and banana, or hammers and screwdrivers each one has its purpose and should be used when needed).
