Does anyone have a URL that compares all these scripting languages (ruby, jython, groovy, BSF and other javabased/related languages)?

I'm trying to pick one to learn. Do any of them rival perl for an extensive library like CPAN and extensive web based tutorials and support? (beginners@perl.org has fantastic support for beginning perl programmers).

Thanks,
Siegfried

If you're looking for an object-oriented scripting language with a large user base, I'd say go for Python. It may not be the best language but it certainly is more widely used than Ruby, Jython, Groovy, BeanShell, etc.

Perhaps this doesnt measure Ruby, etc, but nice to read:
