It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.
lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that contain the keys key... and
prints any references found on the standard output. lkbib will search any databases given
by -p options, and then a default database. The default database is taken from the REFER
environment variable if it is set, otherwise it is /usr/dict/papers/Ind. For each data-
base filename to be searched, if an index filename.i created by indxbib(1) exists, then it
will be searched instead; each index can cover multiple databases.
-v Print the version number.

When searching files for which no index exists, ignore the contents of fields whose
names are in string.

set. filename.i Index files.
