     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.
