We sell customized clothing for schools across the country. Our system uses a PHP, MySQL and Ajax framework on a linux server to allow customers to set up their own retail clothing site for their specific school. Our MySQL databases are spread between two - the database this job concerns is labeled "AlumniClass" and will be referred to as the AC DB. Other functions of our site include the ability to customize and design their own t-shirts / clothing - this is done via an ajax application on the website, which sets certain variables (like color, exact design needed etc.) the user can then order and submit their designs to us for processing, this is done via php and MySQL.
This job concerns specifically some C scripted .exe files used in the exporting of the designs the customer has chosen for their order to .EPS (photoshop/corel draw) file formats. (Please view the "order_form" image). These order forms are created and output as printable order forms via a .php page - but specifically the designs (like the school name, text, logo etc.) are exported via some .exe files as .EPS files which can then be downloaded through the printing rooms control panel to be printed (Please view the "printing control panel" image).
We are looking for a C Programmer or anyone proficient in the C scripting language to explain how a number (or at least one) of the .exe's function in exporting a design order for t-shirts. The .exe's are the result of an outsourced programmer who will not (or cannot) take the time to explain how the code functions. We need to know the functions so that we can modify certain elements or improvise on the code. Should anyone be capable of explaining the .exe's source code and point out exactly what is being done in the code, they may likewise be able to modify it for us in the future (possible follow-up job) to include certain improvisations like multi-colored text etc.
First, we need to know if anyone is actually capable of explaining the code within a few hours (or more) - their estimate of how long a dissertation would take and how much they would like hourly to be paid for tutoring our in-house programmer over Skype.
For details on what exactly these .exe files are and what they do, please read the attached PDF - keep in mind this is extensive information and may not be totally necessary to complete the job. You can also view a couple of the c script files - if you can comprehend the following, you are well on your way to understanding what it is the .exe's accomplish.
