[sword-devel] How to make new module

Troy, I wrote a small program to browse the NT VSS files and the BKS and 
CPS files. It shows how records in BKS point to records in CPS that point 
to records in VSS that point to text in NT, and displays ten verses from NT 
with the selected verse in color. I was wanting to look at the data in 
these indexes to see what you were using and if there were any 
surprises.  (Why does CPS start with a value of 4 when VSS has 6 byte 
records?) Unfortunately, I wrote it in a learning edition of VB and I can 
not compile it. But if anyone wants the files to compile, I can post them.
