[sword-devel] Hello, I need help with the Sword Utilities

I am a module developer and trying to use mod2osis and mod2imp – I am aware that mod2osis is deprecated.

I am using the latest utilities, published a few days ago.

It seems as if mod2osis and mod2imp run successfully through the bible module, but I cannot find the output.

I searched my whole C: drive, but cannot find the output.

Please help.

Well, mod2osis is a reference objective for the filters. Some day the osis2mod + osisosis filter set will perform a well enough to allow a simple module iteration and output to support a lossless round trip using osis2mod and mod2osis. Greg has submitted patches to mod2osis to bring this really close, but to reiterate, the goal for mod2osis is not to produce an export utility, but to be a reference objective to improve the engine's import and filters.

So, 'deprecate' is not exactly how I would label mod2osis, but practically for end users, it's the same,

Just a general reminder.

mod2osis is a deprecated Sword utility.

You can search the sword-devel archives to find out why.
