Hi all,
As some may be aware, I am interested in developing a frontend for Sword in
VB.  This is not a major development as it is really to help me learn VB
better and because I don't particularly like the current Windows front end.
I also will be fitting development work in between Course commitments and
family commitments, so will be fairly slow moving.  I have been supplied
with a Sword DLL, which is apparently quite old.  I have a few questions,

1. Is there a new Sword DLL being created?
2. I have read the Sword API Primer, but it doesn't help me much.  It seems
to be rather old and out of date.  Is there any better documentation on how
to use the API?
3. I can read C code, but C++ is a little beyond me, but which source code
files should I look at for examples of how to get a text to display?  That
is, how to use the API to load a module, read it and display it using
SWKey() etc.  Any pointers would be most helpful.
4. Any other info I would need would also be gratefully received.

In Christ,

Chris Marsh
