Text Processing in Python
by David Mertz
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional 2003
Number of pages: 544
The book describes techniques for manipulation of text using the Python programming language. Because Python is clear, expressive, and object-oriented it is a perfect language for doing text processing. This book is not a tutorial on Python. It has the goal to help the programmer get the job done pragmatically, and to give the reader an understanding of why something works.

Partly a tutorial and partly a reference book. I summarize information in tables and give a lot of short example programs. I also jump right into things and fill in background information as I go, rather than covering the background material first.

This book is a tutorial-style introduction to programming in Python for practicing historians (and other humanists). We assume that you're starting out with no prior programming experience and only a basic understanding of computers.
