Hi everybody! New poster here, and I'm looking for something special.
I'm a second year computer science major attending University, and I'm looking to extend myself beyond the limited studies I have completed so far.
What I need is a program. I would be willing to program it myself, although I have only taken Java so far, and I feel this may extremely limit me as far as the scope of what I can do. And I'm sort of hoping that what I'm looking for already exists out there. When I think about it in my head, it seems like a program that would be extremely common. So here goes.
The program is mainly to be a guiding system. What it will do is(example): Receieve input
from the internet in the form of a single file. Inside the file will be two pieces of
information, an audio file, and a text file. All I need my guiding program to do is walk
these pieces of information along a path, where they change as they go along. So imagine
the file is receieved, and it parses the file into it's two pieces, sound and text. It then
takes the sound, and shoves it into another program that enhances the volume of the sound.
The guiding program has nothing to do with the actual enhancing of the volume, it just
shoves the audio into the existing program, and then waits at the other end for the new
changed file to come out. Basically that is the whole idea of the program I need. It just
guides something along, throughout it's changes, and then when finished, it packages it up
in a file again, and ships it back through the web to it's origin.
Is there any existing program out there that could do something like I've described here?
Like I said, I would be willing to build it from scratch, but it seems like something so
common, and I feel no reason to reinvent the wheel.
Thanks for reading, and I hope some of you have an answer for me!
P.S- I wasn't sure where to put this as it seems to encompass a range of topics.
