How do I get a list of stations in a text file?

I am wondering how I can get a list of all station names from all the networks with their latitude, longitude, elevation, etc, in a text file?

Answer

FDSN Station Web Service

The IRIS DMC has implemented the FDSN http://station service. This is a REST-ful web service that returns station metadata in either plain ASCII text or StationXML.
