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


       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.  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.
