DESCRIPTION
       lookbib prints a	prompt on the  standard	 error	(unless	 the  standard
       input is	not a terminal), reads from the	standard input a line contain-
       ing a set of keywords, searches the bibliographic databases filename...
       for  references	containing those keywords, prints any references found
       on the standard output, and repeats  this  process  until  the  end  of
       input.	For  each  database filename to	be searched, if	an index file-
       name.i created by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be searched  instead;
       each index can cover multiple databases.

OPTIONS

	      tents of fields whose names are in string.

	      tially n is 6.
