We had a question a bit like this a few weeks ago and had some great answers. Can anyone remember any of the command-line or text-editor approaches?

Errr, the context is that there is a list of local councillor's contact details on a website and i kinda need to extract their email addresses. There's about 42 of them and the listing on the website is a bit like this (ie a bit variable)

[Various lines of text]
[More text]

You could probably delete everything except forty-two one-line paragraphs more quickly that writing this message, but possibly not reliably.

o Search for .+@.+ and replace by &# with "Regular expressions" ticked.
o Click Replace All.
o Now click Find All.
o Go to Edit | Copy (or Ctrl+C).
o In a new document (or wherever), go to Edit | Paste (or Ctrl+V).
o In the new text, search for # and replace with \n (or \t or comma or space or whatever).

I trust this helps.
