This is a fully reworked and completed release of opcit, the package
for footnote-style bibliography.

The package keeps track of what works have already been cited, so that
a further citation produces "Idem" or "op. cit." (both of which are
customizable, both globally and locally).

New features include a complete bst file; corrections or improvements
suggested by users of the first version; cross references between
entries and between footnotes; and more.


The sty file should go in tex\latex\opcit
The bst file should go in bibtex\bst\opcit (or any other subdirectory
of bst, such as public)


The user's manual is the pdf file. Running LaTeX on opcit.dtx produces
this plus commented code.

opcit – Footnote-style bibliographical references

This package addresses the problem of expressing citations in a style that is natural for humanities studies, yet does not interfere with the flow of text (as author-year styles do).

The package differs from footbib in that it uses real footnotes, potentially in the same series as any of the document’s other footnotes. Opcit also, as its name implies, avoids repetition of full citations, achieving this, to a large extent, automatically.
