Although Perl is probably better for string-handling, I think
Python would be a better choice. It "feels" a lot more like a
Lisp and quite a bit more well-known these days.

It is also platform-agnostic, handles errors more cleanly,
and is usually easier to read.

Having said that, I have only a passing knowledge of both Perl
and Python.
