Hi there .....
By way of a very preliminary look at this, I ran mod2osis on a couple of
bibles. The osis looks OK to me, but I'm really not au fait with OSIS.
I've no idea what a properly constructed OSIS bible ought to look like!
I ran xml2gbs on the KJV osis file and got a working gbs module - but
the chapter and verses are fairly randomly sorted: it does begin with
Gen 1:1 (named as 1/1/1) but there any resemblance stops.
As a check, I ran osis2mod on the same OSIS files and got a rawtext
module with ot and nt both zero length!
All the tools are from the latest pre-built Windows binaries I just
However, a test to see the operation of the gbs module I produced gives
encouraging results. Using an adapted version of lookup.cpp I got the
attached output from the original KJV and then from the KJVgbs module
for Gen 1:1. As far as I can see both are identical.
And I can barely detect the difference in reading times, which is
encouraging so far. I want to put some timing code in, to get an idea
first but so far so good .....
Does anyone have an OSIS bible which will build properly using osis2mod?
I spent some time trying to track one down on the Sword site - no
success so far.
Chris - any comments? If I seem to be taking the wrong approach, please
