BibTool - BibTeX file manipulation tool


bibtool [options] [files]


This manual is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for BibTool can be
found in the BibTool Manual. BibTeX provides an easy to use means to integrate citations
and bibliographies into LaTeX documents. But the user is left alone with the management of
the BibTeX files. BibTool is intended to fill this gap. BibTool allows the manipulation
of BibTeX files which goes beyond the possibilities - and intentions - of BibTeX.

BibTool manipulates BibTeX database files through the command line front-end bibtool which
accepts numerous options. Modifications are performed through resource instructions that
allow the modification of the various internal parameters determining the behavior of
BibTool; resource instructions can be grouped in resource files. The original BibTool
distribution contains a sufficient set of resource file samples to perform basic, relevant


bibtool accepts the following options.

Resource files
-R Immediately evaluate the instructions from the default resource file.

-r rsc_file
Immediately evaluate the instructions from the resource file rsc_file.

-- rsc_cmd
Evaluate the resource instruction rsc_cmd.

Input file
-i bib_file
Add the BibTeX database file bib_file to the list of input files. If -i omitted
the file name may not start with a -. If absent stdin is taken to read from.
Input files should follow the bibtex(1) conventions.

Output file
-o output_file
Direct output to the file output_file. If absent the output is directed to stdout.
