WEB Graphs Created by Python?

I am investigating the easiest/best way to generate a graph for a WEB
page based on a simple delimited text file which would be updated on a
regular schedule.  We use Apache currently on Windows NT4 (soon to be
migrated to Linux) so I see using CGI to pass a request to an external
program which would read the text file and create a graph image (GIF
for example) and pass it back via CGI to Apache.  I have read good
things about Python and am wondering if this would be fairly simple to
do with it.  Could someone please comment.  Also considering Java but
that has a steeper learning curve as I understand it.
