lkbib

search bibliographic databases

lkbib [ -v ] [ -ifields ] [ -pfilename ] [ -tn ] key...

It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that contain the keys key... and prints any references found on the standard output. lkbib will search any databases given by -p options, and then a default database. The default database is taken from the REFER environment variable if it is set, otherwise it is /usr/dict/papers/Ind. For each database filename to be searched, if an index filename.i created by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be searched instead; each index can cover multiple databases.

-v

Print the version number.

-pfilename

Search filename. Multiple -p options can be used.

-istring

When searching files for which no index exists, ignore the contents of fields whose names are in string.

-tn

Only require the first n characters of keys to be given. Initially n is 6.

REFER

Default database.

/usr/dict/papers/Ind

Default database to be used if the REFER environment variable is not set.

filename.i

Index files.
