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.

This pair of pack­ages was mo­ti­vated by a friend, who was prepar­ing Bi­ble stud­ies lessons us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of the ap­pli­ca­tion e-Sword and . He wanted a ‘database’ of Bi­ble pack­ages from which he could sim­ply ‘fetch’ pas­sages into the source file.

Pack­age bibpes is used to de­velop a database of verses, and pack­age fetch­bibpes is used to fetch the verses.
