Filtering terms with swish.cgi

I've only been using Perl for about 2 months now so searching through the 
perl modules has been quite a challenge.

I have encoded information in my documents (to be specific, it's bible 
verses). This allows documents refering to verses in different languages and 
using different styles of abbreviations to all to be retrieved by a search.

Previously, I had a rudimetary search page in PHP (a language that I've been 
using for 2 weeks) that would convert references from, for example, Genesis 
1:1 to gen001001, but I saw that swish.cgi is so much more robust--why give 
myself a hard time (nice work!)

To included the feature I need, I added another text control to the FORM in, but I don't know where the different modules use the 
contents of the 'query' text control.

Where can I append the converted search terms from my verses text control to 
the terms from the 'query' text box? I figure once i'm pointed in the right 
direction, i'll be OK!
