Looks like David Mertz's Text Processing in Python is out. I can't see myself holding out too long on that purchase.
Try before you buy - read Text Processing with Python online.
Just one criticism - why-oh-why another one-chapter Python tutorial at the beginning? I really can't see the point. Virtually every Python book has one of these. You don't get this with, say, Java books. They assume that you know Java already.
Also interesting from the pen of David - Why list comprehensions are called list comprehensions.Posted to Python by Simon Brunning at July 01, 2003 03:32 PM
