exe to check page online and notify.
This project is to create a utility that will check to see if a small html file in a specified local directory is the same size as another file with the same name at a specified URL.
If they are different, the user gets a message box asking the user if they want to open their browser to a specified URl or 'cancel'. If the two files are the same size, the utility does nothing. If there is no internet connection, the utility does nothing. If the local file does not exist, the app downloads the online file, and then does nothing.
No matter what the choice, the app downloads the online version of the file, overwriting the local version of the same file. This provides a point-of-reference for the next time the utility is run.
A different file size for the online verison of the html file triggers a message to the user.
It must have four "strings"
1) The path to the local file
2) The URL of the online file
3) The URL that opens in the browser
4) The text of the message displayed to the user (which appears in an 'OK or Cancel" format). OK takes them to the URL that opens in the browser.
This information is stored in an INI file.
The INI file must follow the standard format
I don't care what programming language you use ([url removed, login to view], please - I don't want anyone to have to install the framework files for this), but try to make it as small as reasonable possible.
Be prepared to communicate with me, and please know that a screenshot is not a demo :-P And, of course, you need to submit the source files when the project is complete.
I have posted jobs in the past that got bids in the thousands of dollars, but were settled for just a few bucks. Please be competitive in your bidding. Don't worry if you don't have any feedback - your comments showing your grasp of the job will be more important than any other concern.
