Readers of this newsgroup might be interested in a new book on data
crunching, which is available from Amazon:
or directly from the Pragmatic Programmers:
The book covers basic text processing, regular expressions, XML
manipulation, binary data handling, and the 10% of relational databases
that every programmer should know. Most of the examples are in Python
(though Unix command line tools, XSL, and SQL are in there as well).
The book is aimed at beginner and intermediate programmers; I hope
everyone will find it useful.
