[sword-devel] Install Manager HTTP question...

Hi there team.  :)

So, apparently HTTP isn't really supported with the SWORD  
InstallMgr...  I've been looking around & trying to figure out what is  
missing & I've discovered that there seems to be a sorta-framework for  
HTTP in there, but it's half done...  I'm looking at what is required  
to get this working on an iPhone & currently have 2 choices:  Either  
write my own stuff in Obj-C or figuring out what is required to make  
it work in the SWORD lib...

Poking around on the mailing list, it seems like the reason someone  
hadn't done it so far was (well, besides that it works fine with FTP,  
so ppl just use that!) there was no code to parse a directory listing  
when you retrieve it via HTTP?

Anyway, if someone could outline what's the deal, that would be  
great.  :)  I'd rather code for the SWORD InstallMgr rather than  
making my own code more of a mess by doing things the SWORD way for  
FTP & my own for HTTP...  ;)

Thanks heaps, ybic
