Thanks for this.  I was going to write something like it myself when 
(if) I finally get it fully working.  First, can I say that there's a 
free package of Builder 6 Personal currently available for download at 
the Nokia site:  http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/0,6566,034-49,00.html
You have to register first on the Nokia site and then with Borland, but 
it's free.  The edition is described as 'a restricted version', but the 
restrictions don't seem to affect the Sword build.

Can I add that the project group file I started the build with is the 
one called swordprg.bpg in the BibleCS directory.  This one seems to 
work OK for me (with a bit of tweaking).  Also, one of the 'features' of 
this personal version of Builder 6 is that it needs to start with the 
.bpg files rather than the .bpr files, according to the documentation.

The TntWare package Wade describes doesn't seem to contain the .hpp 
files that the Sword compile is asking for, so I'm investigating 
further.  I may need to do a build of TntWare first and I haven't done 
that yet.  That apart, the Sword api library builds OK and the ICU 
libraries too.  That's as far as I've got up to now.

Can I suggest that all of these 'newbie' hints get put in a doc-file on 
the web site?

Kind regards,
Barry Drake.
