Toolbox

Toolbox is a data management and analysis tool for field linguists. It is primarily aimed at editing lexical data, and for parsing and interlinearizing text, but it can be used to manage virtually any kind of data.

If you have experience with the Field Linguist's Shoebox, you can think of Toolbox as an enhanced version of Shoebox with a new name. It is fully compatible with Shoebox. You can install Toolbox and use it just as you used Shoebox, with virtually no difference. Because Toolbox is an enhanced version of Shoebox, it is sometimes referred to as Shoebox/Toolbox.

A tool for publishing MP3 files on SD cards.

Why use Pub2SDwizard?

Just copying your MP3 files on to an SD card is easy enough, but:

  • What order do you wish them to play in?

    • Since different devices and applications will sort them in different ways, how do you force them to play in the order you desire? - While a simple radio can play files from SD cards or USB sticks, the files will probably be sorted and played solely on their filenames. But mobile phones may sort the files on their creation or last modified date or other embedded metadata

RegExPal

RegExPal is a utility that works alongside of Paratext to do powerful search and replace on scripture text.

  • It lets you see your "find" go to work as you build it (it's dynamic).
  • It let's you see problems with your expression while you are typing it letting you know by a blue highlighter when it is invalid or not yet complete (because more of the expression is required).
  • When you do a replace you get to see a before and after view of the "replace" (one at a time) so you can see if it is working the way you want it to.
