I would like to have an ebook compiler/generator created that would enable me to create compiled html ebooks that run on Windows 95/98/2000/XP.
The ebook compiler will need to generate an executable file that can be customised by the creator, to include a number of standard compiler features:
Generation of a secured .exe file that can be protected by a password and/or be run on a single machine only based on hardware configuration, or username/password or any combination of the above.
This executable must also be rebrandable using a customised rebranding application.
The compiler should allow users to compile directories and subdirectories of HTML and supporting files into a single file that is not extracted to a temporary directory on execution of the copiled file (Important).
I require fully annotated c++ source code for the compiler.
Preference will be given to developers who are able to demonstrate previous experience developing a similar application.
Existing compilers can be used to model this application.
