Download tools and utilities

From this page, you can find tools and other utilities that will help you expand the capabilities of theWord.

Most of the tools on this page are only in English and not very well documented. You can find help about how to use them in the forum.

 

Importer tool (ver. 1.0.21.73 - Aug 10, 2013)

This is a tool that will let you import public domain resources from other formats and use them directly from within theWord. These include:

  • RTF files from your local disk (to create a commentary or book)
  • e-Sword modules (only non-password protected modules)
  • Zefania XML modules
  • Unbound Bible modules

Please, notice that the conversion may not be perfect in some cases.

This tool also includes the following utilities:

  • Apply paragraphs to a Bible module (.ont file). The paragraphs should be in the default paragraph file format.
  • Apply chapter headings to a Bible module (.ont file). The headings should be in the default file format.
  • Convert a UTF8 text to ansii given a codepage.
  • Embed fonts in a non-Bible module.
  • Create a chapter headings file by parsing a single text or xml file (using regular expressions).

Technical documentation and specifications

The format of the module files is open and documented. You can download the latest version of the specification documents from here. Also, there are other documents describing technical aspects of the program here.

  • Bible module file specification
  • Non-Bible modules file specification (dictionaries, commentaries, books, maps, devotionals, etc.)
  • Welcome Screen specifications and instructions
  • File locations used by the program (where modules are, etc.)
  • Translation instructions (if you want to translate theWord into your language, check here first).

 

Utility modules used for creating content, debugging, etc

The following files are made available for those that want to create their own modules, or find out how theWord works internally.

index.zip: a Bible file where each line contains the book, chapter, verse number. Useful to find mappings between absolute line numbers (1-31102) and book/chapter/vers

on-nt-lines.zip: a Bible file where each line contains the actual absolute index and a dummy xref to itself. Useful for building modules, debugging, etc. Make sure you read the 'Information' of the module since it uses some custom keys to toggle some content on/off.

tpl.cmt.twm.zip: a template commentary file with an entry for each verse. The entries are used as placeholder (updated Nov 29, 2012)

tpl-ME.dev.twm.zip: a template for a devotional file, with entries broken up in months and days, morning and evening (ME)

tpl.dev.twm.zip: a template for a devotional file, with entries broken up in months and days, single entry for each entry

Random verse

For let this mind be in you which [was] also in Christ Jesus; who, subsisting in the form of God, did not esteem it an object of rapine to be on an equality with God; but emptied himself, taking a bondman's form, taking his place in [the] likeness of men; and having been found in figure as a man, humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, and [that the] death of [the] cross  (Philippians 2:5-8)
