THE 2006 DONATIONCODER.COM C++ BUILDER DONATIONWARE PROGRAMMING CONTEST RESULTS
About C++ Builder
We are huge fans of Borland's C++ Builder here at DonationCoder.com. It's used in many of our more elaborate windows programs, and it's one of the most powerful tools for C++ programmers that want to do rapid development of rich Windows GUI applications.
About Judging The Results
There were many excellent submissions to the contest, and choosing winners was difficult and several of the decisions could honestly have gone either way. Judging was based on a number of criteria including completeness, documentation, polish, the existence of alternative free tools, the possibilities of improvement, the estimated difficulty of implementation, the usefulness/fun of the entry, and more. We categorized entries as described on our contest rules page, in order to ensure some diversity, but also awarded prizes to individual coders based on multiple entries.
Download and Try For Yourself!
One of the main points of this contest was to encourage the development of donationware software. On behalf of the authors we invite you to download and use these programs. If you find them useful, will you please consider making a donation to the authors to support their continued development?

The idea of HTTPJupiter is very simple - you connect to some TCP server and port, send there a request, and retrieve an answer. However, it has many options that make the process much easier than using, for instance, telnet. The program may be used just as a regular browser, if someone has an HTML parser implemented in his or her brain
Warning: using this program needs some knowledge on HTTP protocol!
I use this program really often, mostly for example for solving problems on www.slyfx.com or www.mod-x.co.uk, also for viewing damaged pages, using fake cookies or tracing the path of visited pages, when they have Location header line, and are not displayed in regular browser. Also, an advantage of HTTPJupiter is that your computer cannot get infected when you visit some page, as nothing on the page is executed - the content is only displayed to user.
