Vedit users may be interested in my Business Card macro which is designed to extract names & phone numbers from the title block often included at the end of an email.
I highlight the block, press Alt-N (the shortcut key assigned).
This produces a file in Vcard format for importing into email address book and a tab delimited file which import into my Palm Vx (Using a program AIMEX).
This will need customisation to suit user needs, and because the current assumes Australian telephone numbers, but this should not be too difficult. I have tried to write code which is modular and reusable.
The best guess at Name, Email Address, Work phone, Fax, Mobile, Home phone, Job Title are placed in Text Registers
These are then further processed based on user options.
Finally a set of routines formats the output.
