The article "Scripting: Higher Level Programming for the 21st Century" by John K. Ousterhout (designer/developer of the Tcl scripting languages) contains some interesting opinions on the growth of scripting languages and their relationship to system programming languages like C, C++ and Java.

The value of Perl and UNIX pipelines in Bioinformatics is illustrated in the article "How Perl Saved the Human Genome Project" by Lincoln Stein.
