Logging in this case is not an option. Right now I'm working with a
system designed to take incoming SMS messages (each stored in a text
document ending in .sms) and display them.

I figured scripting would be what's required. I was just wondering if
one existed. I'm pretty much going to have to learn the language from
scratch, I'm wondering if I could get a recommendation on which is
easier to learn and execute on a Windows system (blasphemy, I know,
but the tools I'm trying to interface with only exist in Win32)

Could you explain this one to me? I'm not sure I'm familiar with it.
