Modify an existing Visual C++ 6.0 program.
This program creates a text file that is used by other software to backup
data to DVD using a special piece of dvd burning equipment. No DVD burning software is required, only the modification of an existing program thatuses a text file that tells the burning software what files to burn and what options are selected.
Currently the software creates a formatted text file
that will specify what files need to be burned to a DVD.
The software works and has most needed options.
We want to change the capability of the software to include the ability
to backup files totaling over [url removed, login to view] to multiple disks. For example,
to copy and entire 20gig drive to dvds, the user would drag the contents to
the window of the program, click a button, the software would divide up
the files into Dvd lists, the program would take the first
4.3 gigs, make a file list and write it to a folder, it would watch another
text file that would indicate the status and when the status changed to
completed the next 4.3 gig list would be saved to the location for the next
disk to be burned. If the software finds a file
too large to fit on a DVD it would bypass that file and give a
warning message in a message window. The program would add the text list it has created of all dvd contents to the first dvd(this size must be part of
the calculation of total dvd size).
There is no burning code to write, the software only creates text files.
We have another command line module that will handle burning.
We have full specifications and the cpp code.
Software must create one job, watch for it to be finished(text file is deleted
automatically when finished) then submit the next job. There should
be a progress dislplay showing which dvd is being sent for processing,
all settings, and any information returned by the status files.
