[sword-devel] Looking for vpl reference

I had that problem (terminating characters) on linux, but not on windows. When I didn't have a windows box, I found that the vpl2mod.exe command under wine worked better than the vpl2mod script. In my case the incoming trouble had to do with the file I was working on being saved by open office as a .CSV (tab separation)

Thanks for the info.
Anyway, seems I almost got it working, following the brief
instructions on the man page of vpl2mod (I'm using Linux, by the way).
I only have one problem: When I open the module on a viewer (I'm
testing it on Xiphos), it lacks spaces between the words. Here's an
example of Genesis 1:1 as it is displayed, so you understand what I'm
"ENelprincipio creó elPoderosolos cielosy latierra."
It should be displayed as "EN el principio creó el Poderosolos cielos
y la tierra."; some spaces between words are missing. This problem is
present throughout all the bible module. Maybe some encoding problem?
By the way, when I compile the module with vpl2mod, I get a lot of
"problem" errors on the terminal, and occasional "ERROR: short read of
terminating char in readline" errors too.
