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.

The book will help you build basic programming skills. It is organized in a way that builds up the language in layers from simple concepts to more advanced features. Programming exercises are provided to encourage further exploration of each layer.

This book is designed to introduce students to programming and software development through the lens of exploring data. You can think of the Python programming language as a tool to solve data problems that are beyond the capability of a spreadsheet.
