     from simplere import Re
     if some_string in Re(pattern):
-        print _[1]
+        print Re._[1]
 There are two things to note here: First,
 this turns the sense of the matching around, asking "is the given string *in*
 Second, the ``in`` test had the side effect of setting the underscore
 name ``_`` to the result. Python doesn't support *en passant* assignment, so
 you can't both test and collect results in the same motion, even though that's
-sometimes exactly appropriate. ``simplere`` uses introspection to get around this
-difficulty and provide neater code.
+sometimes exactly appropriate. 
 If you prefer the more traditional ``re`` calls, you can still use them with the
 convenient *en passant* style.::
     if Re(pattern).search(some_string):
-        print _[1]
+        print Re._[1]
 ``Re`` works even better with named pattern components, such as::
     person = 'John Smith 48'
     if person in Re(r'(?P<name>[\w\s]*)\s+(?P<age>\d+)'):
-        print, "is", _.age, "years old"
+        print, "is", Re._.age, "years old"
         print "don't understand '{}'".format(person)
 It's possible also to loop over the results::
     for found in Re('pattern (\w+)').finditer('pattern is as pattern does'):
-        print found
+        print found[1]
 Or collect them all in one fell swoop::
-    pip install simplere
+    pip install -U simplere
 (You may need to prefix this with "sudo " to authorize installation.)
