A friend of the corporation that helps us with audio/video production was tasked with creating a "database" (excel spreadsheet) containing the contact information for the companies listed on: http://www.aiac.ca/corporate-membership/aiac-members/

Being close to the end of the week, this friend was less than thrilled about having to do menial data entry... so he asked if there was "a way to like download it all in a file off their website or something".

We gave him hope with 8 ascii characters--"RegExes?"

With a blank look on face, he asked "what exactly are RegExes?".



We took pity on him, and whipped up a quick, dirty, and free RegEx based web scrapping app that output the data to a .csv file. You can try it out by downloading the app and clicking "Scrape Site!".
