Date: Oc­to­ber 9, 2003 1:21:25 PM CEST
A new pack­age has been in­stalled on tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your fa­vorite lo­cal mir­ror in a day or two. Thanks again, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: BibTeX Database Gen­er­a­tor Author's name: Pallav Gupta Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: sup­port/bib­tex-gen Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A sim­ple in­ter­ac­tive script to gen­er­ate BibTeX Files. Li­cense type: pd An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This is just an in­ter­ac­tive script that I use in my La­tex work to gen­er­ate Bib­tex files. I do not like typ­ing all the un­nec­es­sary de­tails nor do I like copy­ing and then mod­i­fy­ing en­tries. So I wrote this small script to help you type only what you need in your (cus­tomized) bib­li­ogra­phies and gen­er­ate a file which con­tains all the ex­tra info. I just wanted to share it. Who knows, some might find it use­ful. Note that its not a bib­tex file parser! I'll be happy to make im­prov­ments if some­one (be­sides me) ever gets around to us­ing it. You're wel­come to email me to pro­vide sug­ges­tions. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/sup­port/bib­tex-gen al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors

bib­tex – Pro­cess bib­li­ogra­phies for , etc

BibTeX al­lows the user to store his ci­ta­tion data in generic form, while print­ing ci­ta­tions in a doc­u­ment in the form spec­i­fied by a BibTeX style, to be spec­i­fied in the doc­u­ment it­self (one of­ten needs a ci­ta­tion-style pack­age, such as nat­bib as well).

BibTeX it­self is an ASCII-only pro­gram; there is, how­ever, a ver­sion that copes with 8-bit char­ac­ter sets. How­ever, BibTeX’s fa­cil­i­ties rapidly run out as one moves away from sim­ple ASCII (for ex­am­ple, in the var­i­ous na­tional sort­ing rules for lan­guages ex­pressed in dif­fer­ent parts of ISO-8859 — the “ISO Latin” se­ries). For more flex­i­bil­ity, the user is urged to con­sider us­ing biber with Bib to type­set its out­put.
