bibtex - make a bibliography for (La)TeX


bibtex [-min-crossrefs=number] [-terse] auxname[.aux]


This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this
version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

BibTeX reads the top-level auxiliary (.aux) file auxname that was output during the
running of latex(1) or tex(1) and creates a bibliography (.bbl) file that will be
incorporated into the document on subsequent runs of LaTeX or TeX.

BibTeX looks up, in bibliographic database (.bib) files specified by the \bibliography
command, the entries specified by the \cite and \nocite commands in the LaTeX or TeX
source file. It formats the information from those entries according to instructions in a
bibliography style (.bst) file (specified by the \bibliographystyle command, and it
outputs the results to the .bbl file.

The LaTeX manual explains what a LaTeX source file must contain to work with BibTeX.
Appendix B of the manual describes the format of the .bib files. The `BibTeXing' document
describes extensions and details of this format, and it gives other useful hints for using


The -min-crossrefs option defines the minimum number of crossref required for automatic
inclusion of the crossref'd entry on the citation list; the default is two. With the
-terse option, BibTeX operates silently. Without it, a banner and progress reports are
printed on stdout.


BibTeX searches the directories in the path defined by the BSTINPUTS environment variable
for .bst files. If BSTINPUTS is not set, it uses the system default. For .bib files, it
uses the BIBINPUTS environment variable if that is set, otherwise the default. See tex(1)
for the details of the searching.

If the environment variable TEXMFOUTPUT is set, BibTeX attempts to put its output files in
it, if they cannot be put in the current directory. Again, see tex(1). No special
searching is done for the .aux file.
