No, I don't have any Bible software. That is one reason I decided to
write the cgi scripts I mentioned. (BTW, I know for certain that
quite a few people have tried to use it, but I haven't gotten a
single comment yet! It must be fine, because in my experience, people
usually only write when something is wrong . . :-(;-)

I'm quite sure that there are plenty of people on the list who do
have such software though, and perhaps a scan of the archives will
turn up some worthwhile information.

I think Jonathan, when he gets back from his maternity leave (oops!
paternity leave!!) can answer this question pretty easily. I think
that there are several developers of such software subscribed too.

I've heard that Logos software is excellent, but it seems expensive
to me. Plus, I'm currently a Mac person, though a suffering one, and
the majority of software packages run on the IBM-like platforms.
Plus, the texts are freely available, it's perfectly simple for me
to write the software myself.

Paul, can you try out the thingies (a Perl term -- one actually
blesses them, i.e. the thingies) I wrote? Maybe it will be
sufficient, and save you enough money to buy me a Christmas present?
