    Combining C++ with scripting language

    I am generating web pages using FastCGI C++ engine, which takes XML file with page description and generates it. But now I need to use my engine to call some script (It is really not very good idea to hardcode everything in C++.) with some page specific code which is not worth to be added into engine functionality (some simple conditions, loops, ... - only a few lines of specific code).

    Now, my question is, which scripting language/languages (Perl, Lua, Ruby, Python, PHP, ...) should I use to achieve the best performance and could be easily called from C++ code?
