Yes, it is really possible to build biblecs with BCB6.  When this 
semester is over, I will write up some instructions on building biblecs 
from the CVS tree.  Until then, consider using the prebuilt libraries at 

You will still need the cvs tree for biblecs.  Read the instructions and 
follow as through as building the tutorial.  Also place the biblecs 
directory into C:\yourdir\biblecs.

Open the BCB6 project called "sword.bpr" in C:\yourdir\biblecs\CBuilder6 
and "make". 

If I included all the instructions properly and you followed them 
properly ... how's that for a disclaimer :) ... then everything should 
work the very first time.  (oh, such a bold statement).

Of course, I was always told, "Whenever you give demo, never say 
anything more prophetic than 'Watch this.' "

A Joyful Servant,

p.s. I've really spent a lot of time on Sword when I should have spent 
time on my studies and final essays.  I wouldn't change it, but I'm 
working real hard to play catch up.  I earnestly request and appreciate 
your prayers concerning the excellent completion of my class work.  (by 
the way, other Sword Developers are going through finals as well this 
month and it might just be a nice and kind idea to pray for the whole 
team.  We sure would appreciate it.  Thank you kindly.)
