#35255 Update to version 12

Posted by Starkman on 02 February 2019 - 03:28 PM

I didn't know there is a version 12. Looking on the main site, it shows only 11 as available.

#35190 More REGEX search questions

It is nuts, it is. But some of us just can't help ourselves!

#35146 More REGEX search questions

Posted by Starkman on 17 January 2019 - 06:43 PM

From the Manual


Pg 242 "\bP(\w)+r\b"


I tried this with and without parentheses around "\w" and got the same results; why, then, are the paretheses needed? The "+" is going to work against just the "\w" whether it's in paretheses or not.





Pg 239

The manual says "(abc){2}” matches the “abc” characters two times.


Question: Is this a minimum of two or zero to two times?





Also, the manual says “(abc){2,}” matches abc a minimum of two times, and “{,4}” matches “abc” maximally four times.


Question: The {,4} is missing in this example, so how should the example read to correcyt itt?





My personal searches 

If "\bthe\w" can find words beginning with "the" and extend the search to "therefore", why can't "\bsad\w" find "sadducee" or "sadducees"? I've tried with several versions. It doesn't even find "sad". Further, "sad\w" finds palisaded (Luke 19:43 Darby). Why?


Thanks much.


#35124 Topic Notes in The Reference section: what were they named?

Posted by Starkman on 13 January 2019 - 02:44 PM

Greetings all,


The Manual states that version 9 (and earlier) of e-Sword had kept the Topic Notes file(s) in the main e-Sword folder. I'm curious: what was the name of the personal working Topic Notes file and of the main Editor's default file? I mean, they couldn't be named the same, obviously.


I ask because in my version 11 e-Sword I have a file named Topic.topx in both \user\My Documents\e-Sword and in \Programs (x86)\e-Sword. As I understand it, the one in My Documents is my personal working file when in the Editor, and the one in the Programs file is the main Editor file.


So, just so I know if I come across this in any old posts or what have you (here on the board), what was the name given to the personal Topic Notes file back when? 


Thanks much.

#27147 Looking for an Esperanto Download

Hey all,


I found an Esperanto.zip file for mobile devices, but I can't seem to find anything for desktops. Is there one and I've just missed it?





#20095 Can default storage locations be changed yet?

Posted by Starkman on 15 January 2014 - 01:09 PM

Oh, heavens, no worries at all, patch. I've dispatched a drone to destroy any and all of your manuals so that we will never have this discussion again!


Really, thanks. No problem at all.


Now, as for you, exscentric, I've dispatched a drone, but it will deal with more than your manuals!


Take care all,

If all fails, read the manual.



Ok, wait one second here. Just hold your horses, patch!  ...read the manual? Really? What kind of person are you? Read the manual? Boy, the nerve! (I'm just stunned...I can't believe......read the manual?)


Manual, pg 52, didn't see this...didn't think it was there because of other posts... (read the manual?)...


Be rest assured, patch, that if after having read the manual (really? I have to read the manual?) I tell you solemnly, in the immortal words of Terminator 1, "I'll be back!"


(Oddly enough, I had been reading the manual about six months ago, but I must have not noticed pg 52.)


Thanks much,




(mumblinb to myself..."I can't believe this. Read the manual?)

#17670 Search not working

Posted by Starkman on 01 July 2013 - 03:50 PM

Hello all,


Say, I can't get the search feature (upper right-hand corner) to work. No matter where I am on the site it doesn't return any hits. Am I missing something here?


I'm trying to find Spanish Bible modules, and it is certainly too time consuming to go through each foreign language module listed.


Thanks much,
