>>These entries look OK (authors are separated by " and " or "," possibly followed by a date). However, the following are harder to parse:
('A032537', '_Patrick De Geest_, april 1998.'),
I'd appreciate "april 1998." -> "Apr 1998"
('A005985', '_Colin Mallows_; revised Jun 13 2005'),
Not that important but ";" -> "," would be good.
('A117239', '_Eric W. Weisstein_, Mar 05, 2006')
I'd appreciate removing the comma after 05
('A184184', '_Emeric Deutsch_, Feb 16 2011 (based on communication from _Vladeta Jovovic_)'),
I'm not sure what's best here. Either
'_Emeric Deutsch_, _Vladeta Jovovic_, Feb 16 2011'
or leave it as is.
('A135533', '_N. J. A. Sloane_, based on a message from Guy Steele and D. E. Knuth, Mar 01 2008'),
Same problem, but worse. Either
'_N. J. A. Sloane_, Guy Steele, D. E. Knuth, Mar 01 2008'
'_N. J. A. Sloane_, Mar 01 2008 (based on a message from Guy Steele and D. E. Knuth)')
FindStat would then remove parenthetical remarks to obtain the author.
('A199352', '_R. H. Hardin_ Nov 05 2011'),
I'd appreciate a comma after the second underscore.
('A018178', '_N. J. A. Sloane_.'),
Please remove the period.
('A016437', 'rwgk(AT)cci.lbl.gov<http://cci.lbl.gov> (R.W. Grosse-Kunstleve)'),
'R. W. Grosse-Kunstleve (rwgk(AT)cci.lbl.gov<http://cci.lbl.gov>)'
Many many many thanks!
