confused   Raw ZIP Help!!!

I am a Linux user. To my knowledge, modules for Linux are only available in the Raw ZIP format.

I am planning to create some modules for SWORD but could not find any information how to do so for Linux. Can someone please help.

Whats the difference between the Raw ZIP and Windows formats? Are there any converters out there to convert from Windows mods to Linux?

Re: Raw ZIP Help!!!
First off, I think the only difference between raw zip and the windows version is the packaging. The modules are the same. Some one correct me if I am wrong, here.

What I do know is that I have used the raw zip files on Solaris, Linux, and Windows and was serving them up from the same shared drive, with no problem.

If you look at the developers section of the Sword Projects website, you will find the module making guide (
It's the same for Windows and Linux (for those who do not shurk the command line available on Windows).
