As you can guess, my language of choice is Ada, but for small things (often "fast and dirty") or to extract stuff from text files, I use Ruby which I prefer over its direct competitor (much more popular) Python.

Then I read this [1]

This could explain the affinity... (Matz is an Adaist! :-))

BTW: for the small things you describe, you could be tempted by HAC (see the post about HAC a few hours later) :-)...

.
whether it's small and dirty or something big, PL/I is a great all-rounder.
