The one you're most comfortable with. Both are probably fine. Both 
provide some form of regexps and parsing.

If you want a language with type inference, use OCAML. But I think I am 
not understanding your question.

Everything else appears doable with strings, structs, and hashtables, 
unless I misunderstand your Englih.
