[sword-devel] Running confmaker.pl

Looking at the new procedures for submitting modules at
one of the instructions requests running confmaker.pl. Please bear in 
mind that while my Debain 9 system has perl, I do not know that language.

The wiki page should have given the URI. It took me a long time to find 
it at
If this is not the correct version, please let me know.

When I gave confmaker.pl an X permission and ran it with no parameters, 
I got the following message:
Can't locate Sword.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Sword module) 
(@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24.1 
/usr/local/share/perl/5.24.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.24 
/usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24 
/usr/share/perl/5.24 /usr/local/lib/site_perl 
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl-base) at Downloads/confmaker.pl line 47, 
<DATA> line 1662.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Downloads/confmaker.pl line 47, 
<DATA> line 1662.

I do have 1.8.1 installed, but the message makes no sense to me.

I did see in the code comments that it appears to take a single 
parameter: The OSIS file. Is this correct?

Help would be much appreciated.

Great News!
God created you, owns you and gave you commands to obey.
You have disobeyed God - as your conscience very well attests to you.
God's holiness and justice compel Him to punish you in Hell.
Jesus Christ became Man, was crucified, buried and rose from the dead
as a substitute for all who trust in Him, redeeming them from Hell.
If you repent (turn from your sin) and believe (trust) in Jesus Christ,
you will go to Heaven. Otherwise you will go to Hell.
Warning! Good works are a result, not cause, of saving trust.
