Dear Сергей Кузнецов,
	I'm not sure what utilities come with the FC5 packages, but if you 
build from source code, you will get quite a number of utilities which 
may aide in your efforts.  We have just released sword-1.5.9.  May I 
suggest you download the package at:



tar xzfv sword-1.5.9.tar.gz
cd sword-1.5.9/
cd utilities/

Then you should see imp2gbs compiled in your current directory.

You can also:

cd ../tests/

and find a few helpful utilities:


Which will show you the index of your newly created book and let you 
traverse the tree and see the entries.

I hope this is helpful.

	-Troy A. Griffitts
