I am diving into Python as of late. I needed a way to automatically create a simple HTML page using some data from Excel spreadsheets that are generated by a proprietary program. The data probably exists in a database somewhere, but I don’t have access to it nor do the developers have any interest in sharing. I found a library to read Excel files and created a simple Python program to extract the data. Python is very interesting and I am wanting more.

Problem:  There are over 500 PDF documents on a web site. The domain name has changed. Many of them had links to the old website. These links need to be converted to the new domain because the old domain is deprecated and will soon be unresolveable. Since a PDF is considered a binary file, it is difficult to do a mass change.
