[sword-devel] Faster searching wanted

Oh. Hm. That looks like a lot of code. I currently go like this: -)
VerseKey key = [bookName cString];
maxChapters = key.books[key.Testament()-1][key.Book()-1].chapmax;
So I should use CreateKey:
VerseKey *key = (VerseKey *)kjvmod.CreateKey();
then some SetKey() function to set the book.
then my maxChapters code
then delete the key.
Or, I suppose I could set the key to MAXCHAPTER and then get what it
is with Chapters() like you do. (Except I'm only grabbing info on one
at a time).
But it would be kind of nice to have a MaxChapters() method in the
API, don't you think :-).
Now - if I understand correctly - the module doesn't control the
locale used by getBookName() - but I can specify the the locale in
the key I create, and I can retrieve the locale used by the module -
depending if the user wants the interface text to match the module in
use, or use their system-wide preferences.
Naturally I encapsulated the code I need in a SwordBible Objective-C
class - so it's pretty easy to change things like how maximum chapter
counts are retrieved.
