[sword-devel] DLL

I will build a new DLL when I get back in town.  The code for the DLL
has not been updated for quite some time.  There is a difference with
other language bindings to C++.  They need to be standard C procedural
methods.  You actually could do C++ to Delphi provided no multiple
inheritance (which we do), but other languages need a standard sig on
the methods in the DLL (no C++ manglings).  Anyway, until I get it done,
you should be able to play with a really old version on the site at:

I think it's dated '97, so beware.  Though, this is probably good, since
the delphi code hasn't been changed since then either :)

Hope this helps.  I actually need to do this anyway, since we seem to
have requests for a number of other language bindings.
