Those are all good points. I will go ahead and GPL statement to every source 
file. I am waiting for people at SourceForge.net to approve my account 
(hopefully in next 48 hours). The source code will then be located at 
http://swordbible.sourceforge.net/ and I will try to organize it into 
logical subdirectories. Actually I am not going to add any further feature 
in SwordBible until the code is documented and properly organized. The 
source code that I hastily uploaded to my website is just a temporary hack 
so that I am not violating the GNU agreement. I have also changed the name 
of my software, as reflected at www.swordwarrior.net
