       bibledit-rdwrt - Read or writes data to or from a Bibledit-Gtk Bible or


       Bibledit-rdwrt can read from or write to Bible data.

       Syntax: bibledit-rdwrt -r|-w project book chapter|0 fileName

       Breaking the syntax down we have:

       First parameter: -r|-w This can be either -r  or  -w  which  determines
       whether the remaining arguments are going to do a "read" operation from
       the specified Bibledit-Gtk Bible / project, or do a  "write"  operation
       to that Bible / project.

       Second parameter: project This gives the name of the Bibledit-Gtk Bible
       / project.  All we have to do is ensure that the project name  we  want
       to access is a valid/existing one.

       Third  parameter:  book  This  is simply the 3-letter book code for the
       Bible book that is being read/written to.  I.e., MAT for  Matthew,  GEN
       for Genesis, etc.

       Fourth  parameter:  chapter|0  This can be either a chapter number or 0
       (zero)  for   reading/writing   either   an   individual   chapter   or
       reading/writing a whole book (when the parameter is 0).

       Fifth  parameter: fileName This is a temporary file name that we assign
       for our use with  bibledit-rdwrt.   For  a  read  (-r)  operation  this
       fileName  argument  is  the  name  of  the file that will be created by
       bibledit-rdwrt containing a copy of the whole  book  (corresponding  to
       the  3-letter  code),  or that contains the individual chapter contents
       (of a designated chapter) of an existing Bibledit-Gtk book file in  the
       Bible / project. It should be prefixed with a path us.  Since bibledit-
       rdwrt is a console operation, after AdaptIt calls it using ::wxExecute,
       it would need to read the resulting temporary file to grab the contents
       for its use.  For a write (-w) operation this fileName argument is  the
       name  of  the  temporary file that bibledit-rdwrt reads to get the text
       which it then writes to the appropriate  Bible  /  project  file.   The
       temporary  file  can contain the text of a whole book, or just the text
       of a single chapter for the book specified by the  book  3-letter  code
       and the chapter (number) argument.

       bibledit-rdwrt may exit with 0 on success, or -1 on failure, as it sees
       fit.  It may write to stdout or stderr, as it sees fit.
