Martin Denham commented on JS-208:

This is as an error with the modules .conf file because both SwordBookMetaData.setLibrary and wiki/DevTools:conf_Files state the path must end in a / if it is a directory.

However, Xiphos (and probably other Sword apps) do not delete all installed bibles if the final slash is missing so it would be good to make this code a bit safer.

There only seem to be a couple of .conf files with a missing final / but I will raise an error in MOD for those modules.

> I installed WelBeiblNet this morning and then deleted it using the standard front end delete method.  However this deleted the ztext directory, removing all installed bibles.
> It seems the cause was that the DataPath entry in the .conf file did not end in a /
> I tested on Bible Desktop and And Bible.
> It would be great to get a fix for this that I could apply locally - I am not using the current tip.
