OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for roffbib (opensolaris section 1)

roffbib(1)				  User Commands 			       roffbib(1)

       roffbib - format and print a bibliographic database

       roffbib [-e] [-h] [-m filename] [-np] [-olist] [-Q] [-raN]
	    [-sN] [-Tterm] [-V] [-x] [filename] ...

       roffbib	prints out all records in a bibliographic database, in bibliography format rather
       than as footnotes or endnotes. Generally it is used in conjunction with sortbib(1):

       example% sortbib database | roffbib

       roffbib accepts all options understood by nroff(1) except -i and -q.

       -e	      Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines using full terminal  resolu-

       -h	      Use output tabs during horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce output
		      character count. TAB settings are assumed to be every 8  nominal	character

       -m filename    Prepend  the  macro  file /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.name to the input files.
		      There should be a space between the -m and the macro filename. This set  of
		      macros will replace the ones defined in /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.bib.

       -np	      Number first generated page p.

       -olist	      Print  only page numbers that appear in the comma-separated list of numbers
		      and ranges. A range N-M means pages N through M; an initial -N  means  from
		      the beginning to page N; a final N- means from page N to end.

       -Q	      Queue output for the phototypesetter.  Page offset is set to 1 inch.

       -raN	      Set  register  a	(one-character) to N. The command-line argument -rN1 will
		      number the references starting at 1.

		      Four command-line registers control formatting style of  the  bibliography,
		      much  like  the  number registers of ms(5). The flag -rV2 will double space
		      the bibliography, while -rV1 will double space references but single  space
		      annotation  paragraphs. The line length can be changed from the default 6.5
		      inches to 6 inches with the -rL6i argument, and the page offset can be  set
		      from  the  default  of  0  to  one inch by specifying -rO1i (capital O, not

       -sN	      Halt prior to every N pages for paper loading or changing (default N=1). To
		      resume, enter NEWLINE or RETURN.

       -Tterm	      Specify term as the terminal type.

       -V	      Send output to the Versatec.  Page offset is set to 1 inch.

       -x	      If  abstracts  or  comments are entered following the %X field key, roffbib
		      will format them into paragraphs for an annotated bibliography. Several  %X
		      fields may be given if several annotation paragraphs are desired.
