BibTeX2HTML - A translator of bibliography databases into HTML


bibtex2html [options] <filename>


bibtex2html is a translator which reads a bibliography file and outputs two HTML documents
that contain respectively the cited bibliography in a nice presentation, and the original
BibTeX file augmented with several transparent HTML links to allow easy navigation.


General aspect of the HTML document
-t string, --title string
specify the title of the HTML file (default is the file name).

--header string
give an additional header for the HTML document.

--footer string
give an additional footer for the HTML document.

-s string, --style string
use BibTeX style string (plain, alpha, etc.). Default style is plain.

-noabstract, --no-abstract
do not print the abstracts (if any).

-nokeywords, --no-keywords
do not print the keywords (if any).

-both, --both
produce both pages with and without abstracts. If the BibTeX file is foo.bib then
the two pages will be respectively foo.html and foo_abstracts.html (The suffix may
be different, see option --suffix). Links are inserted from the page without
abstracts to the page with abstracts.

-nokeys, --no-keys
do not print the cite keys.

-use-keys, --use-keys
use the cite keys from the BibTeX input file (and not the ones generated by the
BibTeX style file).

-rawurl, --raw-url
print URLs instead of files' types.

-heveaurl, --hevea-url
interpret the macro rl as HeVeA's one, i.e. with two arguments, the first one being
the url and the second one the text to print. The default behavior is to interpret
the macro \url as the one from the package url, which has only one argument (the
url itself).

-f field, --field field
add a web link for that BibTeX field.

-nf field string, --named-field field string
similar to -f but specifies the way to display the link (e.g. -nf springer "At

-note field, --note field
declare that a field must be treated like the abstract field, i.e. is an annotation
to be displayed as a text paragraph below the entry.

-multiple, --multiple
make a separate web page for each entry. Beware: this option produces as many HTML
files as BibTeX entries!

-single, --single
produce a single document, inserting each BibTeX entry (the input) right after its
BibTeX output.

-bg color, --background color
set the background color of the HTML file (default is none).

-css file, --style-sheet file
set a style sheet file for the HTML document (default is none).

-charset c, --charset c
specify the charset to use in the META tag of generated html files. The default is
the output of the command locale charmap, or if this doesn't work, ISO-8859-1.

-dl, --dl
use HTML DL lists instead of HTML tables to format entries.

-unicode, --unicode
use Unicode entities for some macros, such as &#X22A8; for \models, etc.

-html-entities, --html-entities
use HTML entities for some macros, such as &asymp; for \approx, etc.

Controlling the translation
-m file, --macros-from file
read the LATEX macros in the given file. Note: bibtex2html does not handle macros
arguments; arguments are simply discarded.

-noexpand, --no-expand
do not expand the abbreviation strings, leave them in the output file.

Selecting the entries
-citefile filename, --citefile filename
Select only keys appearing in filename. To be used manually or in conjonction with

-e key, --exclude key
exclude an particular entry.

Sorting the entries
-d, --sort-by-date
sort by date.

-a, --sort-as-bibtex
sort as BibTeX (usually by author).

-u, --unsorted
unsorted i.e. same order as in .bib file (default).

-r, --reverse-sort
reverse the sort.

number entries in reverse order (i.e. from n to 1 in plain style).

Miscellaneous options
do not produce any HTML documents but write to stdout the sorted list of BibTeX
keys (one key per line).

-nodoc, --nodoc
do not produce a full HTML document but only its body (useful to merge the HTML
bibliography in a bigger HTML document).

-nobibsource, --nobibsource
do not produce the _bib.html file. In that case, no BibTeX entry links are inserted
in the HTML file.

-suffix string, --suffix string
give an alternate suffix string for both HTML files and links (default is .html).

-fsuffix string, --file-suffix string
give an alternate suffix string for HTML files (default is .html).

-lsuffix string, --link-suffix string
give an alternate suffix string for HTML links (default is .html).

-o file, --output file
specifies the output file. If file is -, then the standard output is selected.

-c command, --command command
specify the BibTeX command (default is bibtex -min-crossrefs=1000). May be useful
for example if you need to specify the full path of the bibtex command.

-i, --ignore-errors
ignore BibTeX errors.

-q, --quiet
be quiet.

-w, --warn-error
stop at the first warning.

-h, --help
print a short usage and exit.

-v, --version
print the version and exit.

-noheader, --no-header
do not insert the bibtex2html command in the HTML document (default is to insert it
as a comment at the beginning).
