[sword-devel] GTK+

Hi there .........

I don't know if anyone out there is interested, but I've been playing 
around with GTK+ on Windows.  I was into this some four years or so ago 
when I built the GTK4Win and DevEX extention for DevC++.  Things have 
really moved on since I last looked, in particular, the GTK+ TextView 
widget makes for impressive handling of UTF8.  Please write off-list if 
you want more info. 

In particular, I've now dug out the source for the old Sword 'Cheatah' 
front end.  It won't build against the latest Sword api, and my own 
knowledge of the api (and of C++) isn't enough for me to be able to fix 
it.  If anyone feels they would like to help, let me know.  It would 
make a good, and very easy entry point to Sword programming if we could 
make it work, update the text handling and be willing to maintain it.  
And it's cross platform too!

Any takers?

God bless
