Dear Barry,

CURL for SWORD windows stuff should be available from the BibleCS 


It should be called 'biblecs' and go at the same level as sword and 

There should be project files to build the command line utilities.

Which reminds me, we need to get new versions of the command line utils 
up for Don Elbourne (and others) build against 1.5.10.

I don't know if the free versions of Borland tools are up to Borland's 
2006 BDS code base or newer, but there should be project files for both,
