Hi David,

CrossWire modules' internal file format is proprietary!
This should not be surprise - despite our commitment to open source

The correct procedure to use the SWORD API to obtain information stored in
the module.

There are a number of Sword utilities that can output some of the module
See http://crosswire.org/wiki/File_Formats#The_SWORD_Project_Utilities

You may find that mod2osis is adequate for the task you have in mind.
Even mod2imp can often help, if you are just looking at some of the tagging
in context of the Biblical text.
