I just downloaded a copy of Chapter 1 (“Text”) from The Python
Standard Library By Example straight to my iPod Touch. It is a
different chapter than is available from the Addison-Wesley page I
mentioned here previously. The 317 pages in the sample include the
table of contents and index along with the full text of chapter 1,
covering the string, textwrap, re, and difflib modules.
Check it out via the iTunes Store
When you order directly from Addison-Wesley, The Python Standard
Library By Example is available in EPUB and PDF format
unencumbered by DRM. There are no passwords or locked files, just
a personalized watermark. The eBook can be purchased by itself, or in
a bundle with the physical book.
