eSword Commentary Convert Error

Post by rcbenjamin » Thu Jul 16, 2015 4:19 am

I get an error when I try to convert Matthew Henry commentary from eSword. The name of the file is henry.cmtx and it has a lock symbol located to the left of it. In fact, most of the commentaries in eSword has the same lock symbol by them. How do I convert it over to Bible Analyzer?

You can't. All the ''official" esword modules are encrypted even if they are public domain. The only modules that can be converted are the user made titles, and not all of them convert well because there is little consistency among them.

In contrast, none of the Bible Analyzer public domain titles are encrypted, even if they are Premium Modules.

Thanks for your reply. What is the easiest way to convert the Premium commentaries in Bible Analyzer to a text file since they are not encrypted?

They are in SQLite database format so you will need an SQLite reader to view and extract anything from them. There are several free online, even as a Firefox plugin. I'm not very familiar with any of them, though, so you will have to learn a little on how to use one of them. I deal with the data in Bible Analyzer using SQL commands in Python which can be kind of cryptic.
