File type specification:

Text file type icon Text file type

The gbf file extension is used for General Bible Format that is used by various Bible study software.

The .gbf file consist of a series of tokens, which may be tags, words, spaces, or punctuation.

These tokens may not cross line boundaries. When read, line endings are the same as a single space, except when they immediately follow the token, in which case they are ignored.

It is up to the program displaying or converting the text to another format to insert soft line breaks at the appropriate places. For ASCII values greater than 127, the U. S. Windows ANSI character set is assumed. (Currently, the only use for these characters is for typographic quotation marks).

GBF readers targeting DOS or Unix should convert characters in this range to the closest equivalents on those platforms.
