Jeff Turner and forrest-dev list-
Thank you so much for your help. 

I know this group moves really fast and this was a post from a long time
ago, but if you wouldn't mind continuing with this.  I have Forrest set
up on my computer and everything is working correctly I would like to
test to make sure that the pattern match is working correctly would you
be willing to send the source for directory2book.xsl.  I want to make my
own but it would be nice to know if my system was working correctly.

Thank you very much.

Unfortunately libre is more or less dead from a user POV.  The code is
lurking in the CVS attic, waiting for someone to tackle the problem of
auto-generated menus again.

In the meanwhile, it's pretty easy to generate a book.xml file from a
directory listing.  There is an example of this at:

That sample project requires CVS Forrest to run though.
