Using Diatheke ?

Is there a way to get Diatheke to leave out each verse? I.e. diatheke Jo 3:10-17 has each verse labelled

John 3:10

John 3:11


Can I tell Diatheke to skip the verses in the output?

Ultimately I want a command line option do something like

diatheke -noverse (scripture) | festival --tts

to speak any portion of scripture. (can set a reading plan up as a daily alarm, etc. )

(if it matters I'm using linux. PCLinuxOS 2007 to be more specific.)

Stale news !

The News section on the main page has only three items from eight years ago!!!! Anyone object to removing this section? David Haslam 14:59, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Nobody objected - so deletion will be done. David Haslam 15:20, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Page needs updating

Diatheke 4.5 is now available. The page needs updating. David Haslam 08:34, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Workaround for RTF format

Here's a workaround for the missing color table in diatheke RTF output format.

Using an ordinary Unicode compliant text editor, insert the following as line 2 into the file.

{\colortbl {\cf0;\cf1;\cf2;\cf3\red0\green0\blue0;\cf4;\cf5;\cf6\red255\green0\blue0;}}

Then save the file. When opened afterwards using WordPad, the red letter text should display correctly.
