[sword-devel] STEP modules - back from the dead
Thu, 1 Feb 2001 05:04:05 -0800
Sorry I haven't been in touch since this last email. I was hoping
I'd have more time to review my code and provide a "readme" of some kind
before sending it to you. I have it ZIPped up (minus any readme file) and
can send it any time. Should I post the email with the attachment to this
list, or send it to you at some other address? Are you still interested
since it's been a couple of months since my last post?
I am researching compiling under Linux and I believe I will be able
to do so very soon. I want to be able to compare the output of different
modules so that I can see if I am outputting the text in a format SWORD can
understand. However, I'm not at all clear on where development stands.
Where are you at this point and how can I help? Where are your modules and
what are they called?
