I have had a suite of Delphi programs/modules written that access a website and scrape information from it. The site has now officially opened an API and I want my programs converted to use this API..
There are 9 main program/modules and a number of general purpose routines that require conversion..
The target date for full conversion is November 1st
I can provide copies of the .pas source to any interested parties and details of the API..
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
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).

Thanks to all for the interest shown in this project..
However, I was just about to award the project to a bidder, when I received notification from the providers of the API that they have a major new release scheduled for July..! In the circumstances I consider it prudent to put the project on hold until it has been released and proven..
Again, many thanks for your interest..
