Reverse Engineering Project - open to bidding

For a publication library Win32 app, I am looking to extract data from its proprietary and undocumented file format.

* It is multilingual and precedes Unicode, most likely compressed.

* The individual documents are search indexed (indices in separate files).

* They are sorted into a hierarchy: Publication (file-level) > Chapter > Content.

* Some publications are magazines, their hierarchy is: Publication (file-level) > Year > Issue > Chapter > Content.

* The documents are interconnected with hyperlinks.

* Few publications contain images, most is formatted text.


I will provide you with the entire library viewer app including all of its publication files (1+GB).


* The tool you develop to read and convert the files to the following format.

* I can work from a set of legible, interconnected HTML (and JPG) files with their TOC files, sorted into nested folders.

* All formatting, links and footnotes need to be retained.

* Indices should be on a separate file per publication, using HTML anchor tags < a id="uniqueID" > in the content files.

* I should be able to use the same tool on more files of the same specification.

* Delivering a command line tool for Win32, x64, Linux or macOS is fine.
