Excellent. At least for the time being I don't need much more than
the basic functioning of the Sword library and eventually some basic
installation. I haven't yet figured out how the installation portion
will work in all its details, but the basic concept is starting to
become clearer as I read through the iPhone documentation.

I have built the whole libsword.a with an XCode project (which I'd be
happy to share), which allows me to easily build it for iPhone and the
iPhone Simulator or for Mac OS X. I have built a few of the utilities
(both the buildtest.cpp and installmgr.cpp) from the sword library on
OS X against my XCode version of the library and both of the
executables work as expected. Since the Eloquent wrapper compiled as
cleanly on OS X as possible once I linked in my libsword build from
the XCode project and pointed towards the headers, I imagine that the
wrapper portion alone would build cleanly against the iPhone SDK.
Tomorrow I'll try adding a target for a framework build of it to your
Eloquent project and see how things turn out.
Hopefully I'm not far away from at least a rudimentary executable that
links and builds against the iPhone simulator. I should have most of
the program basics worked out by the time I purchase an actual iPhone,
which should be this summer, about the same time that the App Store
would be opened and applications would become generally available.
