Which programming language can I learn relatively quickly for simple interpretation and manipulation of text files on my Windows box?

For now I'm wanting to code something allowing me to batch search and replace, batch copy and paste, and write a program to tell me which files contain certain words/strings.
The ideal language is cross-platform/non-proprietary. And feel free to suggest good starter resources (online when possible, but books are good to) with your suggestion, or anything else that seems relevant.
Petty arguments over the merits of x language vs y lanauge also welcome, as long as they're relevant.
