Parse strings using a specification based on the Python format() syntax.
``parse()`` is the opposite of ``format()``
The module is set up to only export ``parse()``, ``search()`` and
``findall()`` when ``import *`` is used:
>>> from parse import *
From there it's a simple thing to parse a string:
>>> parse("It's {}, I love it!", "It's spam, I love it!")
<Result ('spam',) {}>
>>> _[0]
Or to search a string for some pattern:
>>> search('Age: {:d}\n', 'Name: Rufus\nAge: 42\nColor: red\n')
<Result (42,) {}>
