[sword-devel] Layout of the conf.

Thanks, Chris.

I have written a code (part of JSword) that examines all the fields and 
compares them to my understanding of the conf file (which at this point 
is incomplete). It produces diagnostics when it does not match my 
understanding. I would like to make it more correct and more complete.

Can someone point me to where in the code that the conf is parsed (is it 
SWConfig?) and also where it is used? (I don't have a C/C++ development 
environment, so I will be doing manual scanning of the source, perhaps 
using "find" and "grep")

When I have done a bit more reading, I will ask questions, and perhaps I 
can update the documentation to make it more current.
