[sword-devel] EVC3 Compile Errors

I don't know enough about MFC yet to take this on but maybe Mr. Trotz 
can test.

The search is really really really bad in swordreader.  I wrote a Bible 
text search in C/C++ (I use a mix of code.) that runs through the whole 
KJV with Strong's in less time than this search takes to get through one 
chapter, well book at least.  It will be challenged if it has to search 
through more than one type of formatting in the text.  So I don't expect 
it would be useful to swordreader.  It also has several other nice 
features (search for two words with a definable range of words between 
each text, plus Strong's number searching) that I would like to see 
added to search but the speed must be first priority.

What is CLUCENE?  Maybe I'll investigate why it doesn't compile.
