Diode selection - any online tools ?

I have scoured the web looking for a tool to help me choose a diode based on the characteristics I need.

Sure, there are thousands of manufacturer's data sheets out there, but is there a tool where I can input forward volt drop, reverse volt rating, and current capability, suggesting a diode type that fits those criteria .....

Specifically I am looking for an axial lead diode (like a 1N400x) which has a Vf of 0.6 to 1.0V, and can handle up to 5A (peak) forward current.

I just feel like I'm scrabbling at the foothills of a mountain, surely there's a tool out there to help me select ?

What is the duration of the peak, it's maximum repetition rate, the maximum continuous current, and peak reverse voltage required?

1N400x will tolerate 30A for 8.3ms, single half sine wave; 1N540x will tolerate 100A peak and 5A continuous.
