       indxbib - create an inverted index to a bibliographic database

       indxbib database-file...

       indxbib	makes  an inverted index to the named database-file (which must reside within the
       current directory), typically for use by lookbib(1) and refer(1). A database contains bib-
       liographic references (or other kinds of information) separated by blank lines.

       A bibliographic reference is a set of lines, constituting fields of bibliographic informa-
       tion.  Each field starts on a line beginning with a `%', followed by a key-letter, then	a
       blank,  and  finally  the  contents  of	the field, which may continue until the next line
       starting with `%'.

       indxbib	is  a  shell  script   that   calls   two   programs:	/usr/lib/refer/mkey   and
       /usr/lib/refer/inv.  mkey  truncates  words  to 6 characters, and maps upper case to lower
       case.  It also discards words shorter than 3 characters, words among the 100  most  common
       English words, and numbers (dates) < 1000 or > 2099.  These parameters can be changed.

       indxbib	creates  an  entry file (with a .ia suffix), a posting file (.ib), and a tag file
       (.ic), in the working directory.



       x.ia		      entry file

       x.ib		      posting file

       x.ic		      tag file

       x.ig		      reference file

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |Availability		      SUNWdoc			   |

       addbib(1), lookbib(1), refer(1), roffbib(1), sortbib(1), attributes(5)

       All dates should probably be indexed, since many disciplines refer to  literature  written
       in the 1800s or earlier.

       indxbib does not recognize pathnames.
