Hi Sam,

Good to hear you are interested in playing around with the source code.  I'm not sure if anyone else has replied to you yet, so I will quickly reply to give a few pointers?

Take a look around the http://crosswire.org/wiki/Main_Page wiki, specifically the top right section on Development Tools.  That talks about the SWORD engine & the code to do with it.  You'll see the page on Tutorial:Compiling & Installing SWORD & it has download instructions from SVN & stuff.

Use of an IDE is a personal preference.  If you're on Windows, some ppl use some IDE that I have no idea about.  My experience of compiling and playing has been Mac only for the last 10 or so years, altho I used to play around with the code prior to that on Debian, but don't ask me any questions about it!  my memory isn't that good...  :P

Hopefully that gives you a start?  Perhaps have a look at swmgr.h and start there?  Actually, a better place would be after you have downloaded the source, take a look in the examples folder.  That will give you a quick intro to what does what, and to some things you can do.  :)

I hope that helps?  Thanks, ybic
	nic...  :)

(perhaps if you are currently playing with some classes, they might be of interest to me too).
