You might be interested in the undocumented re.Scanner class :)
It looks like it could be interesting, but with no documentation, how are we supposed to tell?
Is there *any* information about it available anywhere?
Question: Is there any reason (other than lack of time) why it's undocumented?
I'd be willing to write some documentation, but only if it would stand a chance of being accepted - this isn't an itch of mine, so I don't want to spend ages arguing over whether the class should be documented.
The source code says "experimental stuff (see python-dev discussions for details)". I've not searched the python-dev archives yet, but it seems to me that it'll never be anything other than experimental if people don't know it's there and try it out...
