NAME
latex, elatex, lambda, pdflatex - structured text formatting and typesetting SYNOPSIS
latex [ first line ] DESCRIPTION
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation. The LaTeX language is described in the book LaTeX - A Document Preparation System. LaTeX is a TeX macro package, not a modification to the TeX source program, so all the capabilities described in tex(1) are present. The LaTeX macros encourage writers to think about the content of their documents, rather than the form. The ideal, very difficult to real- ize, is to have no formatting commands (like ``switch to italic'' or ``skip 2 picas'') in the document at all; instead, everything is done by specific markup instructions: ``emphasize'', ``start a section''. The primary source of documentation for LaTeX is the LaTeX manual referenced below, and the local guide in the file local-guide.tex or local.tex or some such. elatex is the e-TX extended mode version of LaTeX format. lambda is the Omega version of the LaTeX format. pdflatex is the pdfTeX version of the LaTeX format. On some systems latex209 and slitex are available for compatibility with older versions of LaTeX. These should not be used for new texts. SEE ALSO

NAME
bibtex - make a bibliography for (La)TeX SYNOPSIS
bibtex [-min-crossrefs=number] [-terse] auxname[.aux] DESCRIPTION
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation. BibTeX reads the top-level auxiliary (.aux) file auxname that was output during the running of latex(1) or tex(1) and creates a bibliogra- phy (.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 ibliography command, the entries specified by the cite and ocite commands in the LaTeX or TeX source file. It formats the information from those entries according to instructions in a bibliogra- phy style (.bst) file (specified by the ibliographystyle command, and it outputs the results to the .bbl file. The LaTeX 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 BibTeX. OPTIONS
The -min-crossrefs option defines the minimum number of crossref required for automatic inclusion of the crossref'd entry on the citation list; the default is two. With the -terse option, BibTeX operates silently. Without it, a banner and progress reports are printed on std- out. ENVIRONMENT
BibTeX searches the directories in the path defined by the BSTINPUTS environment variable for .bst files. If BSTINPUTS is not set, it uses the system default. For .bib files, it uses the BIBINPUTS environment variable if that is set, otherwise the default. See tex(1) for the details of the searching. If the environment variable TEXMFOUTPUT is set, BibTeX attempts to put its output files in it, if they cannot be put in the current direc- tory. Again, see tex(1). No special searching is done for the .aux file. FILES
*.bst Bibliography style files. btxdoc.tex ``BibTeXing'' - LaTeXable documentation for general BibTeX users btxhak.tex ``Designing BibTeX Styles'' - LaTeXable documentation for style designers btxdoc.bib database file for those two documents xampl.bib database file giving examples of all standard entry types btxbst.doc template file and documentation for the standard styles All those files should be available somewhere on your system. The host math.utah.edu has a vast collection of .bib files available for anonymous ftp, including references for all the standard TeX books and a complete bibliography for TUGboat. SEE ALSO
