* Package name : python-nameparser Version : 0.3.11 Upstream Author : Derek Gulbranson <dere...@gmail.com> * URL : https://github.com/derek73/python-nameparser * License : LGPL-2.1+ Programming Lang: Python Description : module for parsing human names into their in individual components The HumanName class splits a name string up into name parts based on placement in the string and matches against known name pieces like titles. It joins name pieces on conjunctions and special prefixes to last names like "del". Titles can be chained together and include conjunctions to handle titles like "Asst Secretary of State". It can also try to correct capitalization of all upper or lowercase names. . It attempts the best guess that can be made with a simple, rule-based approach. Unicode is supported, but the parser is not likely to be useful for languages that to not share the same structure as English names. It's not perfect, but it gets you pretty far. I plan to maintain this package as part of the Debian Python Modules Team. -- Edward.
