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.
