<< My question is now: Does any one know how I can still obtain a copy of
WordCruncher for Windows other than from WCIT? (I found the viewer on the
Internet, but not the indexing software.) Alternatively is there any
possibility to use the prepared texts with an alternative software? If yes,
what software and where can I get it? >>

Brigham Young University under FARMS has just released the Dead Sea Scrolls
on CDROM that runs under WordCruncher for Windows. If anyone should know, it
would be them,

We just moved an old WordCruncher Edition (ca. 30 MB) to FolioViews, a
quick text
retrieval programm on win32. With some smaller perl scripts the transfer
was easily
Further info:
Drawbacks: 1) Folio has changed ownership at least 3 times in the last few
years 2) The
viewer is not free 3) It doesn't use an open standard encoding.
If you are not in a hurry to publish your texts (we were), the best way
would propably be
to move them to an XML enviroment using teixlite p.e.
