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
