[sword-devel] libsword utilities - Perl bindings question

Hey Peter,

Many of these utilities simply call a method from the engine, so the
Perl bindings might already have the call you need.  Have a look inside
vs2osisref.cpp and see if the perl bindings expose the calls in there.

I'm sorry about not having more info, but I'm Perl-illiterate and have
no exposure to the Perl bindings in SWORD or how to use them.
