Hi Alonso!

>>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)'),

I'd appreciate

'R. W. Grosse-Kunstleve (rwgk(AT)cci.lbl.gov<http://cci.lbl.gov>)'

Many many many thanks!
