    What scripting languages?



    I have a unix background, now delving into win (9X,NT) operating systems and SilkTest. I need to pick some kind
    of scripting language for:

    1: automated editing (like unix sed/awk commands) of my .t files for current info used in verification (i.e. date info or other non-constant data).

    2. running a series of .pln or .t files which have different .inc for each.

    3. It'd be nice if it was simple, powerful, and easily available.

    I've done a little investigation into this. I'll be starting from nada, and have time to invest in getting up to speed. Any suggestions welcome.

    Thanks

    Why not use 4Test itself?

    Use perl, tcl & expect, python. Use the www.activestate.com ports to windows for
    perl or python. They have just started
    supporting tcl but I don't know if they
    support the expect extension yet. There
    are other places to get Windows versions of
    Expect.



    You should
    also use the cygwin (formerly part of
    Cygnus which was bought out by RedHat) port
    of Unix commands. You will actually get a
    bash shell but it doesn't support all of the
    Unix commands. Interix also has has a port
    of Unix commands to Windows (bought by
    Microsoft to help migrate Unix software
    to Windows).



    If you need to control a Windows box from a
    Unix box, you need to get a telnet server
    installed on the Windows box. I've set up
    a web interface on a freebsd box to run
    silktest scripts. It uses expect to telnet
    over to Windows, run the test script, and
    then retrieve the results back to the web
    server.



    If you install Samba on a unix box, windows
    boxes can directly access unix files like it
    does other Windows boxes.
