The fetchbibpes Bundle Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2018/07/30

This bundle provides two packages, bibpes and fetchbibpes. This pair of packages was motivated by a friend, who was preparing Bible studies lessons using a combination of the application e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) and . He wanted a database' of Bible packages from which he could simply fetch' passages into the LaTeX source file.

  1. The bibpes package is the database' part of the problem. Use the e-Sword application to copy and paste desired passages into an (empty) TXT file. Use makebibpes.tex to convert the TXT file to a DEF file formatted in a way that is usable by fetchbibpes.
2.  The fetchbibpes package is the `fetch' portion. Using the fetch 
    commands of fetchbibpes to reference the passages to be typeset into 
    the \LaTeX source. Two commands, \fetchverse and \fetchverses are 
    defined with numerous support options for formatting the verses. 
    A simple example is \fetchverses{Gen 1:1-10}, the command fetches
    the passage Genesis 1:10 from the `database' of DEF files input
    into the source document.

Unpack the distribution by latexing fetchbibpes.ins.

What's new (2018/07/30) Bug fixes. Added the cfg option for specifying a custom contiguration file. New commands showTranslAlways, showTranslDecld, translFmt, translTxtFmt, and cobblevrs. All documented in the manual. NOTE: The format for the CFG file has changes, you will need to update to this new syntax; refer to Section 3.8 of the manual and to fbpes.cfg for an example.

What's new (2018/07/12) Defined a new command fetchversestxt; the command has the same arguments as fetchverses, but it does not expand to typeset content. Rather, it defines two commands versetxt and passagetxt. These two are the passage reference and the passage for that verse but with all styling and font changes.

What's new (2018/03/21): Implemented open ended ranges, for example, fetchverses{Joh 3:27-} fetches all passages from John, chapter 3, starting with verse 27 until the end of the chapter.

What's new (2016/09/24): Changed behavior of the alt key. Added an alt key.

Enjoy.
