LOOKBIB(1)		    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  in-
       put 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  in-
       put.  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 con-
	      tents of fields whose names are in string.

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

FILES
       filename.i  Index files.
