I require a program to parse an RTF document of specific format into message strings that will be emitted to a binary file of custom format as well as to other RTF documents. Parsing involves symbolic info from arbitrary .NET assemblies.
You are bidding to finish a C++/CLI project for Win32/.NET 2.0 or 3.5 which I've already started in VS 2008. As it stands, the program writes the binary file from managed objects. The remainder of the program must be developed. Majority can be developed in C# if the developer prefers.
The developer will have to be familiar with .NET reflection and the Microsoft Rich Text Format, and will preferably have and know an existing library to parse and build RTF documents.
Please see the attached ZIP file, which has a very detailed project specification, the present source code of the project, and sample input and output. Please review this prior to bidding.
Payment will be by escrow. The developer must send a demo executable which will parse the first 10 messages in the document and otherwise perform all functionality to spec. Funds will be released upon my confirmation that the demo fully adheres to spec, at which point full source code is required.
Time is not a big factor as this is not needed right away. My biggest concerns are price and ability to follow the spec exactly.
My funds are very limited. $500 is the absolute maximum I would even consider, but lower bids will be strongly preferred.
In your bid, I absolutely require the following information:
1. Do you intend to finish the project entirely in C++/CLI, or also use C#, and what is your experience specifically in the chosen language?
2. What is your experience with RTF, and do you intend to parse it yourself or use a library? If using a library, what library? (If you have not decided, state this.)
I WILL NOT ACCEPT BIDS THAT DO NOT ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS IN SPECIFIC TERMS!!
If you have any questions, feel free to post them, and please do not place a bid until you are completely clear about the task.
Based on some feedback I rewrote the spec. The approach is now much cleaner and the spec is more detailed.
(The new spec is 20090904a.zip. Thanks, Kevin.)
Sorry..forgot this file (needed to compile the existing code). This was referenced by an absolute path, so you'll need to change the #include directives that refer to it. Thanks.
Some people have had problems building the project. If you are using VS2008, please see building.txt which I am attaching now for instructions to help resolve dependencies. Also note you will need ALL the attached files (although the specification and samples in 20090819.zip are mostly deprecated, this archive still has needed dependencies). Let me know if you have any problems.
