Until Alternate Versification is implemented this page will serve as a planning page. Once it is done, it will probably be reworked to be a how to create an OSIS Bible with Alternate Versification.
Initially, a Bible with alternate versification will be a RawGenBook. The goal of changes to the SWORD engine is to make the handling of such Bibles transparent to the various front-ends as much as possible.
The conf of Bible with an alternate versification will have the following entries:
- Create a ZGenBook driver and the ability to compress a RawGenBook.
- Allow a front-end to obtain an ordered list of Bible book names and the number of chapters in each book.
- Support parallel view of Bibles with different versifications. This requires the ability to map from one scheme to another.
