Text Processing in Python
Publications of David Mertz -- Gnosis Software Home -- Code samples from the book -- Errata
A couple of you make donations each month (out of about a thousand of you reading the text each week). Tragedy of the commons and all that... but if some more of you would donate a few bucks, that would be great support of the author.
In a community spirit (and with permission of my publisher), I am making my book available to the Python community. Minor corrections can be made to later printings, and at the least errata noted on this website. Email me at <firstname.lastname@example.org> .
A few caveats: (1) This stuff is copyrighted by AW (except the code samples which are released to the public domain). Feel free to use this material personally; but no permission is given for further distribution beyond your personal use. (2) The book is provided in "smart ASCII" format. This is converted to print (and maybe to fancier electronic formats) by automated scripts (txt->LaTeX->PDF for the printed version). As a highly sophisticated "digital rights management" system, those scripts are not themselves made readily available. :-)
