Timo Bau­mann sub­mit­ted an up­date to the BibArts pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2.2 Li­cense type: gpl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: "Arts"-style bib­li­o­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion An­nounce­ment text:
BibArts is a pack­age to ad­min­is­ter bib­li­o­graph­i­cal ref­er­ences in foot­notes, and for cre­at­ing a bib­li­og­ra­phy from these ref­er­ences si­mul­ta­ne­ously; it re­quires a pro­gram, for which source and Win­dows ex­e­cutable are pro­vided. (A sum­mary of con­tents is in English; the full doc­u­men­ta­tion is in Ger­man.) === Changes from BibArts ver­sion 2.1 (2016) to ver­sion 2.2 (now, 2019): (1) bib­sort 2.2, the sort­ing pro­gram of the pack­age, has 3 new op­tions: Use bib­sort -h [...] to sort hy­phens ( - \hy \fhy "= "~ ) as spaces. Use bib­sort -b [...] to be­gin the sort­ing of the ti­tle at \bago, e.g.: \vli{J.}{Smith}{The \bago \ktit{Book}, Lon­don 2005} bib­sort -n1 [...] will cre­ate blocks of foot­note num­bers only, if the en­tries are from foot­notes on the same page, e.g.: 10^{3-6}, 11^{7-9} (2) If there are two en­tries of \kli{Smith}{Book} from two suc­ces­sive pages, but with *the same* foot­note num­ber, bib­sort 2.2 will print out e.g. 10^{3}, 11^{3} . bib­sort 2.0 and 2.1 ig­nored 11^{3} in that case. (3) bib­sort 2.2 checks your in­put con­cern­ing the \ktit{Short­ened Ti­tle}. You will find warn­ings on the screen and as com­ments in the cre­ated files. (4) \vli{J.}{Smith}{The \ktit{\on­lyvoll{r}\on­lykurz{R}ed Book}, 2006} has to be used (for in­dex and ibi­dem), if the short­ened ti­tle is not just a part of the full ti­tle ("red" and "Red"). In some cases, bib­sort 2.1 printed out wrong only-ar­gu­ments on the lists. This er­ror has been fixed. And er­rors in the sort­ing of en­tries with only-com­mands were elim­i­nated. (5) You may say now \re­new­com­mand{\ntsep}{\ba­point\ } to print out a full stop be­tween name and ti­tle; BibArts is avoid­ing e.g. "Smith, J..". (6) If you '\re­new­com­mand' a pre-de­fined text el­e­ment (cap­tion), you some­times will have to adapt the italic cor­rec­tion. Bibarts 2.2 pro­vides the ho­moge­nous com­mand \ba­corr in­stead of the four dif­fer­ent com­mands \bakxxcorr, \baabkcorr, \bal­ist­corr, and \bakntsep­corr (but those old com­mands are still valid). To print the lists, you may say now e.g.: \re­new­com­mand{\frompage­sep}{\ba­corr ; } \print­numvli \print­numvkc (7) If you use ba­bel, BibArts 2.2 will not ex­e­cute \orig­i­nalTeX be­tween list items (that's pre­pared by bib­sort, if the cat­code of " changes): It was use­less with ger­manb-ba­bel and caused er­rors with french-ba­bel. With ger­man.sty or nger­man.sty, the use of \orig­i­nalTeX is still re­pro­duced. (8) bibarts.sty pro­vides new com­mands for the hy­phen­ation in Ger­man: - \old­hyss to set a \ss, which is split­ted s-s (to be used be­tween vovels, e.g. au\old­hyss er; you have to use your sharp S else, e.g. da\ss); - \newhyss to set a \ss, which is split­ted s-s only in small caps, and else is print­ing a sharp S, which is split­ted as \lan­guage says (-\ss); - \hyss to ex­e­cute \old­hyss, if \lan­guage is \l at ger­man, and \newhyss else (e.g. if \lan­guage is \l at nger­man --- so, \hyss can be used *al­ways*); - com­mands for the han­dling of "trip­ple con­so­nant be­fore vovel" in Ger­man: E.g. Sto\hyf figur, Scha\hyl leis­tung, Sta\hym mut­ter, Ke\hyn num­mer, Ste\hyp pullover, Sta\hyr rah­men, and Schri\hyt tempo: If \lan­guage is \l at ger­man, BibArts will PRINT AND SORT \hyf as f, and ELSE as ff, etc. + All com­mands are ready to be used in \MakeUp­per­case (also Dru\hyc ker). (9) If you \con­fer­ize, e.g. \kli{A}{B} will print a cross-ref­er­ence to \vli{}{A}{\ktit{B}}. The INTERNAL KEYWORD is cre­ated from the let­ters, and some ac­cents you use in {A} and {B}. The ac­cents are REPRESENTED as \`=[ \'=] \"=* \ss=(ss \l=(l \L=(L \o=(o \O=(O \^=) \~=- \c=+ in the key­word. The ac­tive " and \= \. \b \d are not rep­re­sented any more. === Pub­lished un­der the terms of the GNU Gen­eral Public Li­cense. BibArts 2.2 (C) Timo Bau­mann 2019

BibArts – “Arts”-style bib­li­o­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion

BibArts is a pack­age to as­sist in mak­ing bib­li­o­graph­i­cal fea­tures com­mon in the arts and the hu­man­i­ties (his­tory, po­lit­i­cal sci­ence, phi­los­o­phy, etc.).

bibarts.sty pro­vides com­mands for quo­ta­tions, ab­bre­vi­a­tions, and es­pe­cially for a for­mat­ted ci­ta­tion of lit­er­a­ture, jour­nals (pe­ri­od­i­cals), edited sources, and archive sources. In dif­fer­ence to ear­lier ver­sions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (ital­ics) and is able to set ibi­dem au­to­mat­i­cally in foot­notes. It will also copy all ci­ta­tion in­for­ma­tion, ab­bre­vi­a­tions, and reg­is­ter key words into lists for an au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­ated ap­pendix. Th­ese lists may re­fer to page and foot­note num­bers. BibArts has noth­ing to do with BibTeX. The lists are cre­ated by bib­sort (see be­low).

BibArts re­quires the pro­gram bib­sort, for which the sources and a Win­dows ex­e­cutable are pro­vided. This pro­gram cre­ates the bib­li­og­ra­phy with­out us­ing MakeIn­dex or BibTeX. Its source is not writ­ten with any spe­cific op­er­at­ing sys­tem in mind. A sum­mary of con­tents is in English; the full doc­u­men­ta­tion is in Ger­man.
