Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to the CrossWire Bible Society.

In late 2003, I went through the "learning curve" for rebuilding BibleCS
using CBuilder6. If it would be helpful, I can share some links and TWiki
hints/shortcuts. My understanding is that there have been a number of
improvements in the documentation and project files, and  so it isn't quite
the daunting endeavor it used to be.

Something you might consider getting involved in ... the LcdBible
"frontend". One of its objectives is to provide a "newbie friendly"
situation which might simplify the "learning curve" for eventually
participating The SWORD Project development. It uses an "experimental
plug-in subset" of the vastly comprehensive sword-api.

Here is a link to an earlier post, "Recruiting volunteers to help with
LcdBible project":

and a webpage link:

For His glory and honor,
Lynn Allan
