I'm compiling SWORD with GCC 2.9.5, a late version of the GNU C compiler
(using Mandrake Linux 7.1beta3, kernel 2.2.15. It all compiles and links
just fine, but sadly the loader (ld.so 1.9.5) bombs out with an
"assertion failure" on most of the apps. Cheatah compiles and runs
nicely, which is great. The loader does this when compiling other
(non-SWORD) apps as well, so I'm strongly suspecting a buggy version of
the linker or loader rather than any flaw in SWORD. I'd like to put some
of the text tools into (a) web page(s) for single-click referencing from
discursive web pages.

You might have some joy compiling the Unix source under Windows using
the Cygnus (CygWin) tools.

Linux will not get in the door by simply mentioning it... it must win
by proving itself superior. We have no marketing department, our sales
department is an FTP server in North Carolina and our programming
department spans seven continents. Am I getting through? -- Signal11
