Looking for a coder to write an RSS Server application in Delphi that, when installed, serves an RSS (XML) file when it receives an HTML request for that file via TCP/IP. The elements of the RSS feed will be in a text file (.TXT). When the application receives an HTTP request, it should look for a .txt file in a specific directory that matches the name of the RSS feed requested. It should read the text file, format it into appropriate RSS format, then return that RSS file as the response to the original HTML request. If the file does not exist, a default RSS file should be returned. The Delphi web server should be completely standalone (doesn't require IIS), and should run immediately after the application is installed and running, without any additional installs or configuration necessary. See [url removed, login to view] for good information on how to use Indy, which is included in Delphi to be the server. SEE ATTACHED FILE FOR INFORMATION ON THE FILE FORMATS. Ask if you have questions. This should be fairly straightforward for someone familiar with XML and Indy.
