       miktex-bibtex - make a bibliography for LaTeX

       miktex-bibtex [option...] auxfile

       This man	page is	an adaption of the corresponding TeX Live man page.

       BibTeX reads the	top-level auxiliary (.aux) file	that was output	during
       the running of miktex-latex(1)miktex-tex(1) and creates a bibliography
       (.bbl) file that	will be	incorporated into the document on subsequent
       runs of LaTeX or	TeX.

       BibTeX looks up,	in bibliographic database (.bib) files specified by
       the \bibliography command, the entries specified	by the \cite and
       \nocite commands	in the LaTeX or	TeX source file. It formats the
       information from	those entries according	to instructions	in a
       bibliography style (.bst) file (specified by the	\bibliographystyle
       command,	and it outputs the results to the .bbl.	 file.

       The LaTeX reference manual explains what	a LaTeX	source file must
       contain to work with BibTeX. Appendix B of the manual describes the
       format of the .bib files. The BibTeXing document	describes extensions
       and details of this format, and it gives	other useful hints for using

	   Pretend to be program name, i.e., set program (and memory dump)
	   name	to name.  This may affect the search paths and other values
	   used. Using this option is equivalent to copying the	program	file
	   to name and invoking	name.

	   Disable automatic installation of packages.	Specifying this	option
	   overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

	   Enable automatic installation of packages.  Specifying this option
	   overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

	   Give	help and exit.

	   This	option is only available on Windows systems: show the manual
	   page	in an HTML Help	window and exit	when the window	is closed.

	   Add the directory dir to the	head of	the list of directories	to be
	   searched for	input files.

	   Defines the minimum number of crossrefs required for	automatic
	   inclusion of	the crossref'd entry on	the citation list; the default
	   is two.

	   Suppress all	output,	except errors.

	   Record all package usages and write them into file.

	   Enable trace	messages.  The tracestreams argument, if specified, is
	   a comma-separated list of trace stream names	(Chapter 9, Trace

	   Show	version	information and	exit.

	   Extra paths to locate .bib files.

	   Extra paths to locate .bst files.

	   Comma-separated list	of trace stream	names (see Chapter 9, Trace
	   Streams). If	this variable is set, then MiKTeX programs will	write
	   trace messages into the configured log sink.
