[sword-devel] Preparing a bible text module from raw text
Tue, 26 Dec 2000 23:53:27 EST
This is probably not what you are looking for, I do not know what an OLB
module is but it probably is not "raw text." (OLB = Online Bible? ) At this
site, http://www.crosswire.org/sword/ALPHAcckswwlkrfre22034820285912, look
prn2sword.exe (430,080 bytes; 19-Apr-1999) Used to create a SWORD module
from an installed OLB Bible text.
olb2sword.exe (102,912 bytes; 13-Jun-1998) OLD tool to directly read an
installed DOS OLB module and produce a SWORD module
At the above page it was stated that CVS could be used to get the source
for Sword. Sorry, but I am not familiar with CVS. The information that I
have concerning CVS is at the bottom of this e-mail. Is CVS simular to
telnet? Or do I telnet to use CVS? In the meantime I will search the net
for more information.
What Is CVS?
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions
of files (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why
changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. It handles multiple
developers, multiple directories, triggers to enable/log/control
various operations, and can work over a wide area network. The
following tasks are not included; they can be done in conjunction with
CVS but will tend to require some script-writing and software other
than CVS: bug-tracking, build management (that is, make and make-like
tools), and automated testing.
And a whole lot more. See the manual for more information.
