Develop a program previously and already partially written in BASIC for a pocket computer, (1982), and partially in Liberty BASIC, (2004), for a laptop/desktop as the initial requirement.
For a PDA using Windows as the operating platform as the next alternative.
Open to suggestion on programming language.
Printouts for the original programs are available these were written by myself so do not expect programming rocket science. The formulae are reletively easy as is the sequence of calculations.
Generally the program must work along the following lines:
Multiple menu selection of predefined operations.
Information is input and missing variables are given as the answer.
Information is input and points to plot for a graph/curves are given.
Must be able to plot graphs/curves with intercept points as well.
Information is given and answers are generated consecutively.
Must have the ability to print out the information as input and the answers in logical sequence.
Must be protected to ensure multiple copies cannot be made and/or loaded onto differing laptops/PDA's.
Once the basic program is developed these can be worked and built upon to enhance the program.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Generally Windows for the desktop/laptop option as the initial project.
A further development option will be for a PDA using Windows.
