[sword-devel] Module installer for SwordReader

Hi there .........

I've begun work on a simple commandline version for a modules installer 
for SwordReader.  I've placed a binary package of a complete installer 
directory up at: http://www.crosswire.org/sword/swordreader/installer.zip

and the source is in swordreader svn under 'installer_src'.  If any of 
you have SwordReader running on a working pocket pc that uses ActiveSync 
to connect to a pc, maybe you could try it out and see where we are 
going so far.

It does not yet install:  What it does so far is connect via rapi (that 
is using the ActiveSync api, so ActiveSync must already be connected to 
the divce), it searches the device for mods.d and marks the containing 
directory as the SwordReader 'Home' Sword directory.  It then copies all 
the .conf files from mods.d to the pc, and fires up Windows 
InstallManager.  After that, it does nothing except print a message .... 
  just to say it got there.

It would be good to have some feedback before I go much further with it.

(Oh, stuff like my test zipfile ought really to be somewhere other than 
where I've put it.  Am I able to upload files into the beta test area? 
And if so, where do I find it?).

God bless,
