Running e-Sword on Linux Mint 19.1...?

28 March 2019 - 05:44 PM

Greetings all,


Did a biblesupport site search for running e-Sword on Linux, but stuff's a bit old after the first hit.


So, I understand you can run e-Sword in Linux with WineHq or something like that, but what I'm wondering is if I do so will it retain all of my downloads (Bibles, commentaries, etc.)? Is there a way to save the configurations and download information so that it isn't lost when you close Wine? (I've never run wine, so I'm in the dark there.)


Any input on how to do this as well would be great.


Thanks much.


More REGEX search questions

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.


Well, I finally did it!

Hey all,


Over the weekend, I made it my goal—one that I was absolutely bent on completing—to read through the entire manual. And... I did it! Along with creating eight pages of notes for my own reference as I go along.


This has been a long time coming, and I really needed to get it done, what with my studies moving in the direction they are moving in. So I am so jazzed!


Thanks to all who jumped in and answered questions for me. Oh, and the bonus of completing the manual was that I got that much more familiar with this and the main site.


Thanks again.

Deleting Bookmarks for Hyperlink Use

13 January 2019 - 06:37 PM

Greetings all,


Chapter 8 of the manual addresses the creation of bookmarks for hyperlink use, however, it doesn't tell you how to delete those bookmarks.


A search here found one hit (actually, using Google: site: biblesupport.com delete OR deleting bookmarks) which stated to toggle the invisible characters icon (the paragraph marker), get to the bookmark and delete it there. Is this the only way to do so?
