[sword-devel] Sources for certain modules.

Every book is in a special Sword module format. The ones with z in the 
extension are compressed. The first letter indicates whether the 
compression is at a chapter (i.e. c) or a book (i.e. b) level or a verse 
level (i.e. v), but there are none at a verse level.

The text that is contained by a module may be plain text, gbf format, 
ThML format or OSIS format. The Sword and JSword libraries know how to 
extract the text in a meaningful way. There are linux applications that 
use these libraries. Also, the libraries provide the ability to download 
the modules from the crosswire website and install it to the user's machine.

You can obtain the modules here: 
Please, ignore the files that are zero length. There are no modules for 
them. They represent books under copyright for which we would love to 
have permission to have and distribute.

Hope this helps,
