[sword-devel] usfm2osis.pl

I am trying to use usfm2osis.pl to convert some USFM files to an OSIS 
file for import. I was able to use the Bibledit export feature, but it 
doesn't preserve paragraph tags. I haven't been able to get usfm2osis.pl 
to actually find the data I am wanting to transform. I put the script in 
the folder with the USFM files (named 01GENVB6.txt, 02EXOVB26.txt, and 
so on), but I am not sure what to enter in the terminal.  ./usfm2osis.pl 
VB -o vb.xml vb26.txt isn't right (VB being the module, vb.xml being the 
output file). I am not sure how to use the wildcards for this script. I 
know there must be a simple answer, but it's escaping me.
