So I am starting to learn about scripts and the diffrent kinds of languages and had a question. It seem not all is created equal adn I was wondering in general what makes one better then the other. Kind of a broad question but it got me thinking. Thanks Chad

So there are diffrent scripting languages for diffrent for the lack of better term platforms?
To a limited extent. .NET languages aren't particularly viable under UNIX right now. Other than that, though, virtually all scripting languages are platform-independent. There's a lot of good ones out there, and their differences are primarily either superficial syntax differences or arcane language theoretical differences.

I suggest this simple test. First, come up with something you might want to use the scripting language for... say, A* pathfinding or a simple AI script. Next, implement it in each scripting language you're considering. This will benefit you in two ways: first, you'll have a good idea of which language meshes well with your programming style; and second, you'll have a passing familiarity with other languages as well.
