Whenever I visit a website, I want this app to automatically replace certain data strings with whatever strings I want *PRIOR* to being rendered in
my browser.

This replacement information will reside in a data file, the contents of which would look something like this:

"foo" = "bar"
"FOO" = "BAR"
"whatever it says here" = "replace it with this"

This app needs to replace data strings in scripts (javascript, vbscript, etc.) as well as plain old HTML, and also on scripts that are called using the [script src=""] tag.

I need to be able to enter as many replacement instructions as I want, one per line.

When user installs app, icon resides in Sys Tray, and a right-click produces three clickable options:

a) Toggle on/off
b) Remove icon from systray
c) Update

The first two are pretty self-explanatory.

But if a user clicks Update, the application will
retrieve the contents of a certain file online, let's
call it...

... and then populate the data file by overwriting it
with the current contents of the update.txt file. (Please give friendly error message if user isn't connected.)

I know how to do this in PERL (by using a simple GET command and then use pattern matching and replacing), but now I need a desktop app, and I don't know enough VB or C to do this myself.

Thanks for bidding, and let me know if you have any questions.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

Windows 9x, 2K, XP
IE 5 or better

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.

I can write this program for you.

The application will, once installed, reside in the taskbar with option to hide the taskbar icon (or quit, you are not clear on that). When enabled, it will run as a local proxy and change IE's proxy settings on the computer to patch all connections through this proxy. The proxy will accept requests from the browser and forward them to the Internet. When the proxy detects the list-specified strings in a text/html file contained in the reply, it will replace these with the appropriate change-strings from the list. When disabled, the application will restore IE's proxy settings. Also a feature to update the list as you describe.

Will be written in C++ using MS Visual Studio 7 and Win32 API. Installer included.

Previous experience includes TCP connection redirection software, and remote desktop control via an HTTP web interface.
