splicing wire

if anybody out there can point me toward a reference for splicing double braid to wire rope it would be appreciated. this seems to be the top secret technology of the riggers art for as many books you can find on it. i am restoring an elderly islander on a dinghy budget. i can afford the wire, the braid, or the paying someone to do it.... but not all three. my 3 strand and braid splicing is old news, i''ve just never dealt with wire.
