I am looking to develop a program that enables me to highlight text on the screen, and to be able to capture that text so that I can then use it for some program logic. The job needs to be able to work as a background task so that regardless of the screen / program / application screen, the job will be able to capture the highlighted text on that screen. This would need a trigger or function key to activate the actual capture process once the text is highlighted.

Would you be able to recommend the optimal programming language to develop this in so that it has very little foot-print, and can run on just about anything?

Better still, if you are able to provide the code.

Based on your requirements I would guess C or C++ would be best, however i'm no expert in either of those languages so an example is beyond me.
