You didn't specify what it does on your system. On mine it creates the 
two files, abc.dat and abc.idx, as you said. However, it does nothing 
else and I have to
interrupt execution to get a prompt back.

I have no idea what diatheke does or how it works. Looking at the usage 
output I thought it would do a search for verses matching a key string, 
but it returns nothing.
