No problem.  I think they will be very useful to many people once we get
them working smoothly.

Are you trying the windows binaries or did you compile on linux?

No, the vpl2mod takes one big flat file and generates all the required
files necessary for a module (ot, nt, ot.vss, nt.vss).  Did you try the

        mod2vpl KJV > yoyo
        mkdir kjv
        vpl2mod yoyo ./kjv/

This works for me on linux.  Let me know if it doesn't work for you and
what exactly you are trying so that I might see if I can reproduce it
here and debug.  Thanks!
