"XML processing is the newest required skill for webmasters and application developers. The Python language and Sean McGrath's book make it fun to learn and easy to do."
— Charles F. Goldfarb
When it comes to XML processing, Python is in a league of its own.
If you're doing XML development without Python, you're wasting time! Python offers outstanding productivity — especially in the areas that matter most to XML developers, such as XML parsing, DOM/SAX implementations, string processing, and Internet APIs.
And now there's Pyxie — the new open source library that makes Python XML processing even easier and more powerful. In XML Processing with Python, top XML developer Sean McGrath delivers the hands-on explanations and examples you need to get results with Python and Pyxie fast — even if you've never used them before!
Install Python and the Pyxie XML package
Learn the fundamentals of Python: control structures, classes, nested lists, dictionaries, and regular rexpresions
Process XML with regular expression-driven, event-driven, and tree-driven techniques
Understand Python's support for DOM and SAX APIs
Explore the power of Python/XML through worked examples of GUI development, database integration, and an XML query-by-example implementation.
Elegant, easy, powerful and fun, Python helps you build world-class XML applications in less time than you ever imagined. If you know XML, one book has all the techniques, code, and tools you'll need to process it: XML Processing with Python.
The accompanying CD-ROM contains everything you need to develop XML applications with Python — including
complete Python distributions for Windows and Linux
the Pyxie open-source libraries
powerful utility programs
an extensive library of sample source code tested on both Windows NT and Linux
