I am searching for a Delphi programmer.
The task is to convert some printing modules from Delphi7 to Delphi XE3/64. All modules are in source code. At the moment the functions are (in short):
1. read a txt-file line by line with printing definitions.
2. fill some vars with values defined in a text file.
3. print on canvas (PDF).
4. use embedded WPTools for printing on canvas.
The printing modules are planned mainly to be used in a Delphi XE3/64 program with UNIGUI ([url removed, login to view]), but also in a updated version of the actual windows desktop program (planned Delphi version for the desktop application Delphi 2007).
So as it is planned to use in a internet server application, the modules are to be extended and/or tested in the areas:
1. thread safe, threaded work
2. 64-bit compilation
3. for use in Delphi XE3/64
4. adjust some output routines which may be programmed quick and dirty (mainly for accurate PDF output in connection with WPTools).
Only output will be PDF. At the moment for PDF output the tool WPDF is used, but as for licence restrictions in internet server areas its planned to switch to another PDF printing tool. Also the programmers task is to make a decision which PDF-tool to use, with focus on speed, accuracy and safe use (threaded environment etc.). Switching the PDF output tool is not mandatory, but would be nice.
used commercial tools:
1. WPTools from WPCubed
2. WPDF from WPCubed
Before accepting the job I can send you all the source of the actual units, so you can take a look on the source, calculate the work to be done and tell me if you will accept the job. Please consider that the job has to be finished by no later than end of April.
