How to make an Interlinear Bible or NT using TextPipe

Post by DFH » Thu May 21, 2020 4:54 am

Assume that you have two (or more) Bible translations in Verse Per Line (VPL) format, and you want to make a single file as an Interlinear.

Assume the files have the same scope and versification scheme and that no verses are missing.

Q. How would you do that using TextPipe?

My method currently uses two separate bespoke filters.

1. Add five digit line numbers with tab and merge processed files to a single output file
2. Sort lines of the concatenated file (Start column 1 & length 5) and remove the tab delimited line numbers

The details for each are simple, and don't need to be fully documented here.

Q. Is there a way to achieve the required result using only one TextPipe filter?

Best regards,

David
