The consultant who is helping us get this product developed and tested, tells us it should be a fairly simple project for a good programmer. The programmer who is chosen and completes it quickly and to our consultants satisfactions would be our first choice for maintenance tasks and further enhancements.
This product will be used to create and check small ads, such as classified ads, of a specific length of lines or line length.
This product will allow you to edit and store all sorts of small ads, and include an RTF editor and a small filter checker to compare the ad to a list of 'bad' words and suggest alternatives.
This product will be used by web entrepeneaurs who need to place lots of small ads constantly.
The Interface and Layout for this product has already been coded, and the source code for that will be sent to the chosen programmer. The source code for the Interface and Layout shell is written in Delphi, so the product will be coded in Delphi. A fully functional demo of the shell is included with this specification. Please examine it and the full spec.
The demo is just an example of what COULD be done with the shell template, not the functions/actions we actually want it to perform. The actual bare template is very small. The buttons would actually be programmed to perform actions related to this product (see the full spec).
The deliverables will be as outlined in the full spec. It will include:
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):
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).

The demo is just an example of what COULD be done with the shell template, not the functions/actions we actually want it to perform. The actual bare template functionl but does nothing yet, so it is very small. The buttons would actually be programmed to perform actions related to this product (see the full spec).
Also, 'small EXE' does not mean 500K, it means avoid code bloat. :-)
You will use the provided Interface shell to build this product, using the source code we will provide.
