Re: Bible software
On 4/5, MAS@cs.princeton.edu asked about Bible software.
I am currently a user of the Logos Bible software. If you get it, be
prepared to sacrifice precious real estate on your hard drive. :-(
Here is what I like about it. Rapid point and shoot between verses. Quick
search engine and the ability to display versions.
What I hope is improved:
One cannot do grammatical searches (with what I have. That may be different
with the TVM add-on). I still had to use Even-Soshen for some work I am
doing in Obadiah. I can search for the exact times that ish (as a word)
appears, but it is ignored in construct, or in compounds, or plural. If I
search for a phrase in Hebrew, it looks for a precise match (eg. Greek,
tense, voice, mood, number, case, gender). It is hard to see where all the
instances of a G/H word are.
Another improvement I hope to see: Printing text and notes from the software
(and not from a word processor) is unformattable. If you are making notes on
the H/G text, you cannot put H/G in the notes. Nor can you make the text one
size in the printout and the notes another.
That my say. Otherwise, I enjoy my software.
