Thought I'd chime in on the conversation between Manfred and Greg on  
MacSword and the iPhone SDK.

Glad to see MacSword is alive and kicking. The Eloquent wrapper sounds  
like a good step, though the iPhone SDK doesn't include garbage  
collection (pretty much all the other Objective-C 2.0 features are  

The iPhone SDK does sandbox you into a directory for your application,  
but you could use the networking layer to retrieve and install Sword  
modules. Perhaps another possibility would be to just preload it with  
a few... I'm not sure of the licensing implications, i.e. with ESV,  
God's Word, etc.

I did some work on MacSword back in 2002, long enough ago that I'm not  
sure if I know how to program in C anymore. :-) If whoever is  
maintaining macsword.com could forward nathan at macsword.com to me, I  
could at least retrieve my password on the Sourceforge project.  
Whether or not I actually am able to help at all is another question  

Thanks, Nathan.
