I have to use a script language for an embedded program which is written in C. So far I know that there are several option available such as Python, Ruby, Lua and Java.
The software is running under a LEON2 SPARC microcontroller. I am using as a breadboard platform the spacecraft avionics development platform GR-RASTA - LEON 2
]. As real time operating system I am using RTEMS 4.10
I would like to know if you could help me to identify which are the pros and cons of each of these languages in term of reliability, foot print, speed, libraries, community support, debugging, real-time properties, etc.
Thank so much in advance

Consider consulting the LEON" SPARC manual or experts. They know better what is useful and stable. The runtime of the language must work on the system.
I personally would prefer Python over Ruby, and avoid Java and Lua.
