    OK.
    what i need is simple.
    i need some one to build me a simple custom application that can do the following:
    1. remove duplicates from an email file of 200k FASTER than a speeding bullet.
    2. sort these emails alphabetically.
    3. save the 'cleaned' list as a .txt file.

    thats it.

    anyone up to the challenge?

    I made a program a long time ago that cleaned lists, when I used to program. But 200K would make a lot of programs, even well programmed C programs freeze or take a while.

    if you have a linux machine or even cygwin on windows you can do this via command line quite easily. And it's free :)

    Code:
    sort list.txt | uniq > cleaned-list.txt
    
    that will sort the file list.txt alphabetically, remove duplicates and store them in a file called cleaned-list.txt.


    Hope that helps!

    just sent you a PM... $500 is a nice figure and if you hire someone here, I'm sure they will do a bang up job (lots of talent on BHW). As for me, I use listmate, does the job fine.

    it seems almost nobody want the easy $500, this is the real BHW! :)
    btw i think $500 is pretty much for this kind of work, you can easily find sy who would do it for as low as $150-200 or even less
    ohh i remember you from earlier, you wrote a thread about how sy steal your emaillist via web...

    i dont want a webbased solution.

    i want a custom (my own - standalone) solution.

    thats what im trading $500 for.

    i hope this makes things a bit clearer

    cygwin is not webbased...some kind of linux in windows, and it's free

    try to read once more what zone69 wrote, it's exactly what you're looking for
