We've veered off the road a bit the past few days, largely due to my
dereliction in not throwing out trading ideas & tests thereof for
consideration.  But as long as we're stuck in the mud, and since there
are many Python enthusiasts in the group: I just stumbled on
http://gnosis.cx/TPiP/ which is a free online version of Text
Processing in Python by David Mertz http://snipurl.com/9s4b

Don't know the merits of the book, but since the webpage itself is
irritating to look at, here are the actual chapter urls :
