This is excellent news. As far as I'm concerned, Matt's current edition
is THE documentation for version 2 of REALbasic. Good to see that
version 3 will have documentation as well.

Thx for the kind words! Things have been exhausting but exciting
around here. It looks like we're almost reality, at last.

Even though the book is officially about RB 3.2.1, and even though
the budget does not permit changing that at this point, I was able to
sneak in a lot of info about RB 3.5. Brand new features that I wasn't
permitted to document in the book at all, though, such as RegEx and
RBScript, will have to be covered using Web pages. I got the O'Reilly
folks to put up two chapters on the Web, so feel free to browse;
these two chapters have received some heavy rewriting, mostly thanks
to suggestions from readers.

There wouldn't be any second edition if there hadn't been such a good
response to first edition, so thanks to everyone. It's your support
that has kept this effort alive. m.

I noticed they now say available in September... I hope it's early
September.... in any case I already placed my order.

So what type of 3.5 material *did* you mange to slip in?

BTW What is a good, clear, and easily readbale referehce on regular
expressions?
I've always found the docs on them I've seen rather dense.

I've never gone wrong buying an O'Reilly title (I have dozens). Look at:

There's a very good O'Reilly book "Mastering Regular Expressions".
<http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1565922573/realsoftinc0e>

BBEdit has good RegEx support, and there's also the example project
that is a good way to explore them.

Regular Expression can seem obscure, but are very powerful...

I think we are slated to slot into the printer's next week; and my
guess is that that's a very fixed date, because the printer probably
has to be scheduled well in advance. Things are quite quick after
that point. It's weird. You'd think the slow part of the process
would be physically printing and distributing the book, but that's
amazingly fast. It's slogging through the endless editing and
production delays that takes a long time... m.

Great. Looking forward to getting it.
