    Default BW7 to HALOT in Libronix

    I get segments of it here, but don't seem to be able to find the exact set-up for accessing Libronix where I have HALOT (can't afford to buy another BW version). I would love to be able to right click on a Hebrew word and choose HALOT to have it look up that word, or even that verse, since I believe HALOT has a verse view that shows all the roots in that verse. Can somebody show me exactly how to program that? Once directed to Libronix can I also easily check references in my Contexts in Scripture?

    Default Alas, woe is me

    I cried in the wilderness and nobody heard me.

    Default I have heard your cry...

    I don't have HALOT in Logos, but playing around w/ linking from BW7 to BDB in Logos, the external link manager has to be set something like this:

    BW provides Lemma w/ Hebrew Text
    Browse Window Hebrew NULL
    (NAME) Logos HALOT lemma lookup
    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|la ng=he|scheme=beta|res=LLS:HAL
    NULL
    (NAME)

    (For some reason, this thing always adds a space in the exectuable line. Be sure to have no spaces.)
    This should at least open up HALOT for you, but it won't bring you to the word. I was working from Greek examples and trying to make it work for Hebrew.
    Questions I have to fix and others may help:
    Does indeed "lang=he"? I was guessing on that.
    Is it "scheme=beta"?

    Default oh, yeah

    One other problem why this may not work so well:
    I'm not sure how the text is picking up the Hebrew lemma given the way the Hebrew words are composed. You may have to work with a morphology text instead.

    Another option:
    You can also set it to run a search in HALOT.
    libronixdls:dialog|name=SearchBasic|search=<dummy> |lang=he|scheme=beta|res=LLS:HAL

    Again, that is not returning the correct Hebrew, but the first part of the line will get you started.

    Default Making Progress...

    I have not yet figured out how to search for a Hebrew form/lemma in Logos, but I did get help on the Logos newsgroup for searching for a verse reference in a resource like HALOT.

    Here's how to fill in the boxes for the External Links editor:
    BW provides: Verse Reference
    with... Bible Verse
    Menu Location: Browse Window All or you could use Browse Window Hebrew
    Map Verses using: RSV
    Menu entry text: Lookup Verse in HALOT
    Executable: (next line; make sure there are no spaces; this editor want to put a space in "chapter")
    libronixdls:dialog-bar|name=GoToReference|res=LLS:HAL|ref=<book>.<cha pter>.<verse>

    Parameters: NULL
    Description: Lookup Verse in HALOT

    I'm trying to figure out how to link to a collection. Will report back later...

    Default update

    It turns out that you can NOT pass a collection parameter to the Reference Browser. So, you will need to search by verse, one resource at a time. Of course, it's not a big deal to switch to a collection once you are in Logos.

    Still waiting to hear from BibleWorks folks how to indicate a Hebrew form/lemma...
