Borland C++ Builder 6 is not officially maintained by us. As far as I know
only Daniel Glassey and I use Borland C++ Builder 6 and he rarely runs
windows so BCB6 project files are always behind. First let me ask the
obvious, are you trying to compile from the BCB6 folder specifically? Or
from BCB5? My suggestion is to start from the BCB6 files and work from
there. Mainly you should only need to be adding in new files to the swordlib
project and recompiling. As you run into linker errors you will need to do
some investigating and find the files that are missing, hints will be given
by the linker error, then grep the classname and you will find the source of
the class.
I also know Chris updated ICU recently and that may need some updating in
BCB6 as well. As far as who is updating libsowrd.bpr, I dunno I can't tell
you that. Maybe if I get time Saturday, I can try to compile the latest CVS
stuff on my machine using BCB6 and see where it fails, and try to get a
working set of project files on the cvs. I have not helped Troy on Sword
since last May, I am just too busy these days.
In Christ,
David Trotz
