Why you should use Python 3 for text processing

Summary

Python is a great language for text processing. Each new version of Python--but especially the 3.x series--has enhanced this strength of the language. String (and byte) objects have grown some handy methods and some built-in functions have improved or been added. More importantly, refinements and additions have been made to the standard library to cover the most common tasks in text processing.
