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.
