Your goal is to? analyze and decode a streaming quotes API so that you can? create a document that describes it accurately.?
The API currently runs on the Windows platform only, and I'm interested in duplicating it on my Unix platform (you won't need to write code).
You'll be given a working Windows program? which makes use of? the API,? so that you can observe the protocol using standard packet capture software.

Dear bidder - This is a courtesy follow-up, to thank you for your interest in this project. Many of you showed excellent skills related to the project. Some of you jumped ahead of the crowd and began "proving" they could do the work even before it was awarded. Many of you were truly outstanding, and the selection decision was difficult. I typically have projects like this every few months, and I will invite those most qualified to bid on the next project as well. Thank you for your bids and enthusiasm.
