Which language is inherited for TrafficScript syntax


I am very new to TrafficScript and going through the manual. To get good grip on TS, can anyone tell me which language TrafficScript is based on?

I know all the supported functions for TS is in the guide but which matches the best?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Which language is inherited for TrafficScript syntax

Hi Munim,

The language is designed to have a look and feel of perl, but it is written from scratch specifically for the Traffic Manager. However we do use the PCRE standard for regular expressions, so it's very much like perl in that regard too.
