Project Description

This bid request has gone unanswered under We/Search Engine, but I have recently been informed by a Web coder, that this would stand a better chance either under "Microsoft Windows", which I have done, or "C#/C++/Visual Basic (& .NET)", hence this duplicated bid.

I need a program that can literally go to every page on a single site, and run what would effectively be a ^F command at each one, looking for a specific string, reporting back with links to those pages. My original worded request is as follows:

I would like a combined search-panel and twin search-buttons on my browser (IE6) that when a string is entered in the search-panel, and the first search-button is clicked, will search every page on the site the browser is currently on for said string. [POINT "A" - see next para]. When the second search-button is clicked, it will not only search every page on the site the browser is currently on for said string, but it will also seek out all links to other sites and perform a full search of each and every site for the same string. The results of the search should be listed in a vertical panel down the right-hand side of the screen (i.e., as the viewer looks at the screen) on the opposite side to Favorites, in a similar fashion to the improved search facility in Adobe Reader 6, so that the string found is highlighted to stand out from a a few other surrounding words, and can be clicked on to bring up the relevant web page in the browser (same window). The results of the search should remain until the user clicks an x-button top right of the vertical panel.

POINT "A" - Up to this point, the "Current site" in the Google search bar is supposed to do this, but does not succeed (as far as I can make out, it searches for the string plus the site URL). Also, an application called "Subject Search Siter" is supposed to do this, but on a site where I know a certain string exists 57 times, it found only 5, hence the Bid Request.
