WEB OT How would I go about this?

    In a sense, I was asked to find or make a program that will root through a phone book lets say, and pick out all the information and put it into a master list that can be access and used by another system that will make each business it finds into its own separate web page.

    I don't have anything to do with what happens with the master list, I just have to figure out how to make the master list. What was suggest was to create or find a 'crawler' that could crawl through the online yellow pages and pull our all the business in a local area. My question becomes.. are there already scripts/programs on the net that are made to do this for me? Or is there anyone here that could write a program like this? Or am I missing the picture and there is already a place for me to get information like this easily.. :o

    Either way.. I need your help! :hsd:

    (or you could write a script to do it yourself for free....but if you have to ask then you prolly don't know how)
