NAME
       lkbib - search bibliographic databases

SYNOPSIS
       lkbib [ -v ] [ -ifields ] [ -pfilename ] [ -tn ] key...

       It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       -v     Print the version number.

       -pfilename
	      Search filename.	Multiple -p options can be used.

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

       -tn    Only require the first n characters of keys to be given.	Initially n is 6.

ENVIRONMENT
       REFER  Default database.

			     set.  filename.i Index files.
