Nedd a little help with a python script

Can anyone help me with setting up a python script in Calibre?



I need it to pick up the meta data for the following
I have a few books saved as follows so I could read the title on a PDA.

[Series] - 1 - Title of the book(Author)

(?P<title>.+) - (?P<author>[^_]+) is the default script in Calibre but I can not for the life of me work out what to do so it will pick up the correct info.

Thanks in advance

Tony

Something like this

Code:
\[.*?\]\s*-.*?-\s*(?P<title>.+)\((?P<author>[^_]+)\)
