mxTextTools

mxTextTools includes several useful functions and types that implement high-performance text-manipulation and searching algorithms.

For experts, mxTextTools also includes a flexible and extensible state machine, the Tagging Engine, that allows scanning and processing text based on low-level bytecode “programs” written using Python tuples. It gives you access to the speed of C without having to compile and link steps every time you change the parsing description.

Applications include parsing structured text, finding and extracting text (either exact or using translation tables), and recombining strings to form new text.
