Converting a .bbl (old e-Sword format) to a Sword module
Does anyone know of an easy way to convert the old e-Sword format to the Sword format? A .bbl is just a renamed .mdb (Access) file, so I wouldn't think that it would be too hard to write some sort of conversion script.

I may just try to write one myself, but I'd rather not bother if someone else has already done it. In particular, though, I'd like to be able to preserve the Strong's numbers during the conversion if at all possible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not exactly sure what this does, or if it works cross-platform, but there is a script here https://crosswire.org/svn/sword-tools/trunk/modules/perlconverters/mdb2osis.pl that converts mdb's to OSIS, which could then be converted to modules via osis2mod
