PYTHON COOKBOOK
Order Number: 1673
This book is a collection of problems, solutions, and practical
examples for Python programmers, written by Python programmers. It
contains over two hundred recipes for text manipulation, object
oriented programming, XML processing, system administration, and much
more. This book is a treasure trove of useful code for both novices and
advanced practitioners, with contributions from such Python luminaries
as Guido Van Rossum, Tim Peters, Paul Prescod, and Mark Hammond.

Chapter 1, "Python Shortcuts," is available online:

PRACTICAL VOIP USING VOCAL
Order Number: 0782
While many books describe the theory behind Voice over IP, only this
one describes how such a phone system was actually built, and how you
too can acquire the source code, install it onto a system, connect
phones, and make calls. Because VOCAL is open source, you can look
"under the hood" to discover how the system works and how common
problems are being worked out in the development environment.

Chapter 7, "Session Initiation Protocol and Related Protocols" is
available online:
