This document describes the steps to completely rebuild BibleTrans and its database, with links to the source files. There are still "issues" with some of the steps as noted, which may be fixed before this document is updated. Everything pretty much works on my MacOS (the real Mac, not OSX). To do it on the PC you need these pieces:
The T2C compiler, plus some C++ compiler for Win32 (I used VisualStudio)
The source files for BibleTrans code (zip download), in Turk/2, which T2C compiles to C++
The (zip download) source files for BibleTrans database (public-domain version, ask for the licensed data)
Each compile from Turk/2 to C++ takes a while, so I use something like a MakeFile (see brief description here), which I have included a copy "BTmake.txt" with the source files download. Assuming you have these folders set up (including the defaults for T2C) -- or you can adjust the pathnames to match your folder structure -- and assuming you are starting with an empty library file, this will make C files from all the T2 sources:
If you neglect to delete the library file (it will be in whatever folder you set up for T2C) or replace it with an empty, you will get a "====>> Pkg # failure" error. If you have a saved copy of the library after building the SysLibs part of T2C, you can omit those steps from this make, but trying a partial build with an empty library file and not starting with Nothing.t2 corrupts the generated C code, although it appears to succeed.
DocPrep puts up a dashboard window, in which you can
choose what parts of the build you want to run. "Do All"
rebuilds everything from the files as extracted from the zipped folder.
For more information, see "Document Preparation".
The final step of this process is to build the "BT_Docs.BTD" which
BibleTrans needs to run. This is currently 17.2MB.
It is also supplied as part of the Demo download.
The first time BibleTrans runs it looks for its tree files (actually just
MattTree.BTD), and if it doesn't find them, rebuilds the set.
You need to do this fresh for this version. Then install the existing trees
by opening them in the
Trees folder from the File->Open menu in
BibleTrans. Opening "imLkTreeList.txt" and "imPhpTreeList.txt"
will read in all the trees listed in those respective files.
