All programs process data, and one of the most important types of data is text. In this chapter, you'll work through the basics of textual data. You'll automatically search text and get back exactly what you're looking for. Along the way, you'll pick up key programming concepts such as methods and how you can use them to bend your data to your will. And finally, you'll instantly power up your programs with the help of library code.
