indxbib - make inverted index for bibliographic databases


indxbib [ -vw ] [ -cfile ] [ -ddir ] [ -ffile ] [ -hn ] [ -istring ] [ -kn ] [ -ln ]
[ -nn ] [ -ofile ] [ -tn ] [ filename... ]


indxbib makes an inverted index for the bibliographic databases in filename... for use
with refer(1), lookbib(1), and lkbib(1). The index will be named filename.i; the index is
written to a temporary file which is then renamed to this. If no filenames are given on
the command line because the -f option has been used, and no -o option is given, the index
will be named Ind.i.

Bibliographic databases are divided into records by blank lines. Within a record, each
fields starts with a % character at the beginning of a line. Fields have a one letter
name which follows the % character.

The values set by the -c, -n, -l and -t options are stored in the index; when the index is
searched, keys will be discarded and truncated in a manner appropriate to these options;
the original keys will be used for verifying that any record found using the index
actually contains the keys. This means that a user of an index need not know whether
these options were used in the creation of the index, provided that not all the keys to be
searched for would have been discarded during indexing and that the user supplies at least
the part of each key that would have remained after being truncated during indexing. The
value set by the -i option is also stored in the index and will be used in verifying
records found using the index.


It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

-v Print the version number.

-w Index whole files. Each file is a separate record.

-cfile Read the list of common words from file instead of /usr/share/groff/1.22.3/eign.

-ddir Use dir as the pathname of the current working directory to store in the index,
instead of the path printed by pwd(1). Usually dir will be a symbolic link that
points to the directory printed by pwd(1).

-ffile Read the files to be indexed from file. If file is -, files will be read from the
standard input. The -f option can be given at most once.

Don't index the contents of fields whose names are in string. Initially string is

-hn Use the first prime greater than or equal to n for the size of the hash table.
Larger values of n will usually make searching faster, but will make the index
larger and indxbib use more memory. Initially n is 997.

-kn Use at most n keys per input record. Initially n is 100.

-ln Discard keys that are shorter than n. Initially n is 3.

-nn Discard the n most common words. Initially n is 100.

The index should be named basename.i.

-tn Truncate keys to n. Initially n is 6.
