Thanks for the info Chris.
I looked over the sword web project but I am really integrating
scripture tools into other PHP applications so I decided to stick with
Diatheke for now... I
Today however i discovered the Swig php bindings. I saw some
examples in perl. Has anyone used this with php yet? Do i have to
install swig on my server or is it enough to have sword installed...
Do I just include some files and have the sword classes available to
me... any info is appreciated. I'm running debian stable by the way.
