Extract E-mail Addresses
This utility was meant to extract e-mail addresses from a database table of
friends and neighbors that I can access online. I can thus get the latest
you could use this tool to extract anything you care to define.
Simply paste the data you want processed into the Input Box. Click Extract,
then copy the Output box contents to wherever you need, such as the BCC:
field of your e-mail message.
If you know how to use RegExp, you can change the search criteria to whatever meets your needs.
Your browser may throw dire warnings that this form is insecure. It is true that it is insecure,
but it's hardly dire. No information is saved, and it may not even be sensitive. The data is not even sent
anywhere, it's all within your browser. You can take my word for it
that it's safe and continue despite the warning. Or you can move on, it doesn't matter to me. You could also
save the page and use it off line if that helps allay any concerns.
If you just gotta know how the criteria applies to e-mail addresses, but do not really want to figure
out Regular Expressions, here's a summary: \w means match any alpha-numeric character. The
[\w.] thus means match any
aplha-numeric or period character. The + means match any number of occurences. The @
means the match must have an '@' in it, followed by any number of alpha-numerics, specified
by the \w+, and the \. means
there must be at least one period in the match, followed by any number of alpha-numerics and periods,
specified by the last [\w.]+. The \b keeps terminating commas, semi-colons, etc. from
being part of the match.
The flags mean: g for search globally, meaning find all possible matches, not just the
first match. i means ignore case, meaning g=G, C=c, etc. m means search over
multiple lines of text, not just the first line.
