[sword-devel] Collaboration efforts for a front end

Hey quit reading my mind! I was thinking the very same thing. Has
anyone got the stuff to compile on windows outside of Borland? I tried
vcpp 6 and 7 but it loses its cookies real quick like (I just tried it a
couple of times and may not have things set up quite right yet)? I
think wxWindows would be a good bet and would be willing to work with
you (or anyone) doing a pilot to see how it goes. Maybe just getting up
a reader for the bible modules with search features and then cross
compiling for a few systems to see how it goes.
