I have the second edition (no idea which printing ;), and according to
his preface it has indeed been much updated. Most examples are in perl,
the few in python are decent. The knowledge embodied seems very
thorough. Since I've had the book (two weeks now?) I've been able to
solve two otherwise thorny issues using regular expressions. Yay!
