SWORD Project

The SWORD Project is an effort to create an ever expanding software package for research and study of God and His Word. Libraries are developed in ANSI-draft standard C++ and currently compile on Linux and in WIN32 environments. Frontends complete and currently under development include commandline tools, gtk, wxGTK, Qt, Gtk--, and WIN32 C++Builder). Addon modules include Bible texts, commentaries, lexicons, and dictionaries in a variety of languages.

            Look at the hit count... seems to be as much interrest in this project as some of the secular works reported on this site. I have to agree with previous posts. It is good to have a wide range of projects available for Linux. (Not the capitalization... we have always capitalized proper nouns... such as God, and Word (meaning specifically the scriptures))

            Well, I have to admit that I'm glad that Freshmeat isn't afraid to list Christian applications like this! Linux is all about openness, after all.... :)
