Synopsis

Text Processing in Python



describes techniques for manipulation of text using the



Python programming language. At the broadest level, text processing is simply



taking textual information and doing something with it. This might be



restructuring or reformatting it, extracting smaller bits of information from it,



or performing calculations that depend on the text. Text processing is arguably



what most programmers spend most of their time doing. Because Python is



clear, expressive, and object-oriented it is a perfect language for doing text



processing, even better than Perl. As the amount of data everywhere continues



to increase, this is more and more of a challenge for programmers. This book is



not a tutorial on Python. It has two other goals: helping the programmer get



the job done pragmatically and efficiently; and giving the reader an



understanding - both theoretically and conceptually - of why what works works



and what doesn't work doesn't work. Mertz provides practical pointers and tips



that emphasize efficent, flexible, and maintainable approaches to the textprocessing



tasks that working programmers face daily.
