9.1. What Is WSH?

So what is WSH? A language? As the name implies, WSH "hosts" a language and provides a shell to run scripts in. Scripts can be created in the language of your choice (provided it's available).

By default, WSH supports VBScript and Jscript as available scripting languages. But other popular scripting languages, such as Perl, have been implemented in the WSH environment. (To obtain Perl, which many people regard as the most powerful and versatile scripting language available on any platform, visit http://www.activestate.com.)
