I, myself prefer to use Python. This is a free programming language, which
works on several platforms (including windows, unix and mac os). It is
interpreted (so it is slightly slower than C or C++), but it is very easy
to use and to learn. Furthermore, it is possible to link C code with it.
It can be found at:
If you have any questions, please let me know.
PS this language can be used for other stuff as well :)
