Troy and Chris!
You're awesome! Really good work! I'm sure this will help to spread Gods word
in the world!
I'll test this now!

> to cvs. Try them out and let me know what you think.
> There are test tools in the tests directory. There is a genbooktest.cpp
> that should be of interest. Try something like:
> cd sword/tests
> mkdir yoyo
> ./genbooktest ./yoyo/mybook
> The ? will give you a small menu of some stuff to try. You should be
> able to build a tree index and add and view text on your new book. The
> driver for the .conf file (when you finish and would like to check it
> out with swmgr) is RawGenBook
> The iteration of the tree is a little different in a few points. look
> at the printTree method in the test program to see.
> There is also a treeidxtest program. It was done first and tests the
> TreeKeyIdx implementation of the TreeKey interface (which general book
> support uses). It may be useful to see how to use TreeKeyIdx by
> itself. Many (maybe all) functions in this program are also present in
> genbooktest, so refer the genbooktest for the latest version of each
> function; I'll probably back-copy them when I'm not so sleepy.
> TreeKey allows for _USER DATA_ to be stored with each key entry. We use
> this to store the offset and size of the book entry in the rawgenbook
> driver. We can also use this for all kinds of other things. One
> possible thought is for bookmark data.
> NOTE: new files are not added to new autoconf / automake system yet.
> You will need to use the old make system to build. Maybe Daniel can get
> them in sometime soon (hint hint, DANIEL GLASSEY, read this) :)
> Hope you all enjoy it. Please keep our meetings in prayer over the next
> couple days. OSIS will be a great tool for us, Lord willing, if we do
> it right!
