[sword-devel] Information for beginning Windows BCB 6 Developers

Hey guys.  Thanks for the time investigating this.  My apologies for 
being scarce this weekend.  I hope to get caught up with things early in 
the week, but wanted to post a quick note.

BCB6 compilation should NOT require any downloading of packages outside 
of our 3 SVN repos: sword, icu-sword, biblecs.  Simply following the 
instructions at:


to checkout our SVN repository, and then opening the:

biblecs/CBuilder6/swordprj.bpg in BCB6 and choosing Project|Build All 

This should produce a working executable.  It does for me on a CLEAN 
system.  Please let me know if you CONFIRM that it does not for you.
