No.  

Well, you could try paying for the whole (well almost the whole) domain name database:

and write your own program to do whatever you want.

You could indeed write your program, but it's likely that it would never end. And by the time it got a significant fraction through any pattern, you'd probably need to start over to catch all the new names and eliminate hits that had since expired.

There is no reasonably feasible way to do it.
