Thanks for the update. I want to thank you for creating the VC++ project for
the sword.dll It helped me greatly in getting started with the sword
libraries.Anyhow, I would greatly appreciate getting the POSITION class name
changed to SW_POSITION if it is not going to be a problem in the long run.
There is no real hurry, I am taking a month away from computers (other than
at work) so I won't have time to mess around with the name change until
Thanks again :)
