    • dsbw.exe - Loader. You can use lua5.1.exe instead of it.
    • ds280u.dll - wxlua module, slightly modified and renamed to prevent conflicts. Compiled with static wx, and with my lua-wxsqlite3 module.
    • dsbw.lua - Bootstrap file (language is set here!)
    • db/* - Sqlite3 database created here.
    • src/* - dsbw.exe sources and Code::Blocks project file for wxlua module.
    • app/* - Application sources.
    • app/application.lua - Application code.
    • app/translations.lua - Translations. Technique taken from WebBook. You can translate the program modifying this file. Ex:
      tt["WebBook - Version 1.0"] = {
      tr = "WebBook - Sürüm 1.0",
      pt = "WebBook - Versão 1.0",
    • app/images.lua - Some xpm images.
    • app/help - Files for about box.
