Creating contacts for accounts where there is no linked contact

I am looking for the best way of looping through all of the accounts in our salesforce instance.

Where no contact is associated with that account, I would like to create a contact, pulling specific information from the account to populate the fields of the contact.

Could someone point me in the right direction.

Hi Greg,

You have to write after insert trigger on contact.Check if account is associated with the Account and populate the fields of the contact based on your reqruirement.
trigger PopulateContactinfo on Contact (before insert){
	for(Contact contactObj : Trigger.New){
		if(contactObj.AccountId == Null){
			//your custom logic to populate contact info
		}
	}
}
