Editorial Reviews


"It is rare that a programming language can be unequivocally stated to be the right tool for a job. But when it comes to scanning, extracting, and transforming text, Ruby is that tool, and Rob Miller is the right guide to instruct you in the most effective and efficient application of it."

Avdi Grimm
Author, Confident Ruby; Head Chef, RubyTapas.com

"This is a fun, readable, and very useful book. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs to deal with text -- which is probably everyone."

Paul Battley
Developer, maintainer of text gem

"While Ruby has become established as a Web development language, thanks to Rails, it's an excellent language for working with text as well. Text Processing with Ruby covers the nuts and bolts of what I believe is a natural domain for Ruby, all the way from bringing text into the environment via files, the Web, and other means through to parsing what it says and sending it back out again."

Peter Cooper
Editor of Ruby Weekly
Cooper Press

"The biggest selling point of this book is that I can apply it right away -- I am literally using the things I've learned at work today. Perfect for the beginner to intermediate Rubyist, or any programmer who wants some standout techniques for handling text whatever language they're using."

David Wickes

"A lot of people get into Ruby via Rails. This book is really well suited to anyone who knows Rails, but wants to know more Ruby."

Drew Neil
Director, Studio Nelstrom, and author of Practical Vim
