Re: Does debian have an official "standard" scripting language ?

This has been discussed, but not settled. Some love perl, some love
pyhton, some love both and some love none. I don't think there will
ever be a "standard" scripting language, but I guess perl is closest
at the moment, with perl-base being in the base system and all.
