Is it the only choices you have? Because I'd personnally advice none of
I tested both of them before stucking to Perl just because
* it is very pleasant when it come to explore and modify datastructures
and strings (which library things are).
* the ecosystem is briliant: perl comes with lot of libraries and tools
with a quality i haven't found in other languages.
Of course, perl is not perfect and i really would like to use a modern
emerging compiled language like go, rust, haskell or even something on the jvm
(like clojure or the emerging perl6) but all of them miss libraries.
