LOOKBIB(1)              FreeBSD General Commands Manual             LOOKBIB(1)

NAME
       lookbib - search bibliographic databases

SYNOPSIS
       lookbib [ -v ] [ -istring ] [ -tn ] filename...

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

DESCRIPTION
       lookbib prints a prompt on the standard error (unless the standard
       input is not a terminal), reads from the standard input a line
       containing 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 filename.i created by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be searched
       instead; each index can cover multiple databases.

OPTIONS
       -v     Print the version number.

       -istring
              When searching files for which no index exists, ignore the
              contents of fields whose names are in string.

       -tn    Only require the first n characters of keys to be given.
              Initially n is 6.

FILES
       filename.i
                 Index files.
