Programming languages

This is a request for small pearls of wisdom.

I am investigating the advantages and disadvantages of four programming 
languages in developing RDF and OWL applications: perl, python, php, 
and java.

Over the next week, I will post a (hopefully) colorful and opinionated 
essay based on what I accumulate. I'd like to ask for some impressions 
about favorite (and least favorite) languages for developing the 
semantic web. My own pearls (beyond general web app experience) will be 
based on impressions of joyfully printing triples from RDF.

For each of these languages, I have been looking at the syntax / 
writing style, libraries, communities, and applications. I have also 
been looking at the which languages power the major social software, 
ePortfolio, and blog apps. Most helpful thus far has been Dave 
Beckett's RDF Guide
