ok, this might be getting a little tricky....
Does anyone know whether there is a way to get text excerpts from Google -- using something like a regular expression or advanced search syntax?
For example, I'd like to get all text snippets from Google (or from Google's cache) that start with a certain sequence of words, and end with another sequence of words.
The following type of search syntax doesn't work, unfortunately, when starting sequence and end sequence are further than a few words apart: "once upon a time * and they all lived happily ever after
And even if that syntax wood work, it would of course only yield links to pages that contain both starting sequence and end sequence, but not the actual text between, and including, starting sequence and end sequence...
