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	input.
       For  each database filename to be searched, if an index filename.i cre-
       ated 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.
