Advice would be nice, as the only languages I have used are C, Matlab and BBC BASIC, and although I don't know the right answer I'm fairly certain they're the wrong answer.

OK, I'll proffer advice, but I'll be flamed by all your friends because I'm a Windows person and never use Unix. :-)

None of the languages you've stated are ideal for the job, although you'd certainly be able to do it with C or BBC BASIC - just that there's a lot of grunt work to go with it.

Python would be good - nice scripting language with lots of built-in and third-party library functions to help you manipulate strings. If you fancied learning a new language anyway, Python would be a nice choice. (Or Russian if you're planning on going to Moscow anytime soon.)

I tend to reach for C# but that's because it's what I do for a living and so I'm very familiar with it.

I'm sure on the Unix command line you could do all the tasks with a combination of grep and a spot of sed or awk, but I'm sure someone else will advise here.
