This used to hold assorted Python software. Since, of that software, only mechanize is really currently maintained, this page just links to the old website, and the mechanize web site (the other projects have either been folded into that project, or abandoned). Feel free to email me about stuff on the old site, though.
Why the SourceForge project name
mechanize? When I created the SF project, the immediate
problem I wanted to solve was performing searches on a database website with an
unpleasant user interface, and the plan was to write code to help specifically
with that kind of task. Later, I shifted attention to web scraping in general.
