Name
       indxbib, lookbib - build inverted index for a bibliography, lookup bibliographic references

Syntax
       indxbib database...
       lookbib database

Description
       The  makes  an inverted index to the named databases (or files) for use by and These files contain bibliographic references (or other kinds
       of information) separated by blank lines.

       A bibliographic reference is a set of lines, constituting fields of bibliographic information.  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 ``%''.

       The command is a shell script that calls and The first program, 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) < 1900 or > 2000.  These
       parameters can be changed.  The second program, inv, creates an entry file (.ia), a posting file (.ib), and a tag file (.ic),  all  in  the
       working directory.

       The command uses an inverted index made by to find sets of bibliographic references.  It reads keywords typed after the ``>'' prompt on the
       terminal, and retrieves records containing all these keywords.  If nothing matches, nothing is returned except another ``>'' prompt.

       pler to use, but the .ig file is slower to use than the .i[abc] files, and does not allow the use of multiple reference files.

NAME
lookbib - find references in a bibliographic database SYNOPSIS
lookbib database DESCRIPTION
A bibliographic reference is a set of lines, constituting fields of bibliographic information. 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 `%'. The lookbib utility uses an inverted index made by indxbib to find sets of bibliographic references. It reads keywords typed after the `>' prompt on the terminal, and retrieves records containing all these keywords. If nothing matches, nothing is returned except another `>' prompt. It is possible to search multiple databases, as long as they have a common index made by indxbib(1). In that case, only the first argument given to indxbib is specified to lookbib. If lookbib does not find the index files (the .i[abc] files), it looks for a reference file with the same name as the argument, without the suffixes. It creates a file with a .ig suffix, suitable for use with fgrep (see grep(1)). lookbib then uses this fgrep file to find refer- ences. This method is simpler to use, but the .ig file is slower to use than the .i[abc] files, and does not allow the use of multiple reference files. FILES
