Hi - I'm a big fan of crosswire sword, and I use gnomesword in Linux.
For years now, there have been teases about "locked" modules being made
available on the developers list "RSN" - but so far, it looks the only
non-free module is an African Bible.
Since I have a license for CrossOver Office - I decided to try e-sword
It installed flawlessly - in a win98 bottle.
I then purchased a key for the NASB (the entire reason I installed
e-sword) and it too installed flawlessly, so I'm mostly a happy camper.
What I would like to do though is figure out a way to get the .bbl files
translated to something that work in sword - for obvious reasons.
They are a binary format, but running strings on them shows that the
Bible is in there plain text. Interestingly, it isn't in order though,
and the verses are not marked etc.
Anybody have any ideas on how to do this? I don't mind using e-sword in
CXO but I would *much much* rather just use Gnomesword - especially
since cut-n-paste from a WINE app to a Linux app does not work.
