I'm a graphic designer just moving into CGI web page creation. I solely want learn a programming language for doing CGI scripts.
I need a language that is relatively quick and easy to learn, and is supported by many Web hosts (including free ones).
I have done lots of browsing, but without a good, long time working knowledge of languages it's hard to judge what's best.
What I know (which is not a lot):
I know most servers support Perl, but I want to try and steer clear of Perl because it frightens me (well Perl and Regular Expressions).
I'm learning REBOL at the moment because I think it's real easy for doing CGI stuff (and no Regex)!
Only thing is that not a lot of hosts support REBOL (and no free ones at present).
Which languages are you guys using to do your CGI?
Heard of any new languages worth having a look at?
