    Hello,

    I was wondering how and what language to make this program under. Basically I want this program to run in the background (not being seen on the start menu or system tray) and this program monitors the clipboard. If 1 or more of a certain pre-determined text is put into the clipboard than the program will pop up a website link or the website. NOTE: I am not trying to make anything illegal such as virus or something. So don’t ask.

    Thank you,

    Lieb39

    Ehm, delphi or C/C++.

    I suggest delphi since it could prob be nice and easy.

    ...or VB or pretty much whatever you feel like. Anything that can get hold of the clipboard.

    i left it out on purpose. VB is a resource wasting programming language, and anything that is compiled is bigger than a nutsack. Plus i doubt he has the cash to go out and buy an VB compile from MS.
