I MONITOR MANY WEBPAGES FOR CHANGES AND WOULD LIKE A SIMPLE PROGRAM THAT DOES THE FOLLOWING:
The program checks the size of webpages (bytes) and records the sizes to a text file. Perhaps it can do this by loading the page into memory and counting the number of bytes that were transferred?
The urls of the webpages to be checked would be stored in a text file. Each time a page-size check is performed, the byte size is recorded after the url. If the byte size of the webpage changes, the interface would show the size in red. The sample image demonstrates this.
- The user can manually enter URLs into the text file.
- The program should have buttons for "check now" (meaning perform a scan of the list) and "set timeout" (seconds before timeout if no data is transferring and enters 0). Maybe: a button to purge current values.
- So that the program does not appear to be frozen while performing a scan, perhaps the status bar will show the the url that is being checked.
To be written in C++, Delphi, or any language that will allow for relatively small size with no need for runtime files.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
