Test Scripting is used by many testers to build their own tools, generate test data, parse logs, verify functionality, and administering test environments.

This Scripting forum is a general forum for questions in any programming language. It is geared towards "scripting" which is usually (not always) done in dynamic languages such as: Python, Perl, Ruby, JavaScript, TCL

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scripting_language

What defines a "scripting language" is rather vague, so it is also appropriate to ask questions about any other language you are using for testing related tasks (C, Java, VB, etc).

Vendor specific scripting language questions should be posted in the appropriate tool forum.
