roffbib(1)						      General Commands Manual							roffbib(1)

Name
       roffbib - run off bibliographic database

Syntax
       roffbib [options] [file...]

Description
       The  command 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	database | roffbib

Options
       The command accepts most of the options understood by nroff(1).

       -Tterm	   Uses specified name as terminal type for which output is prepared.

       -x	   Suppresses the printing of abstracts.

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

       -e     Formats text with equally spaced words, justified lines, and full resolution.

       -h     Uses tabs in horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce output character count.  Tab characters are assumed to be every 8 nominal
	      character widths.

       -n     Uses specified number (-nN) as first page to be printed.

       -o     Uses specified list (-olist) as only pages to be printed.  A range N-M means pages N through M.  An initial -N means from the begin-
	      ning to page N.  A final N- means from N to the end.

       -s     Stops after specified number of pages (-sn).

       -m mac Specifies  a user-defined set of macros with space between -m and the macro file name.  This set of macros replaces the ones defined
	      in /usr/lib/tmac/tmac.bib.

       -V     Sends output to the Versatec.

       -Q     Queues output for the phototypesetter.

       -raN   Sets named register a to specified value N.

       Four command-line registers control formatting style of the bibliography, much like the number registers of ms(7).  The command-line  argu-
       ment  -rN1  numbers  the references starting at one (1).  The flag -rV2 double spaces the bibliography, while -rV1 double spaces references
       but single spaces 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 zero).  Note: with the -V and -Q flags
       the default page offset is already one inch.

NAME
roffbib - format and print a bibliographic database SYNOPSIS
roffbib [-e] [-h] [-m filename] [-np] [-olist] [-Q] [-raN] [-sN] [-Tterm] [-V] [-x] [filename] ... DESCRIPTION
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 OPTIONS
roffbib accepts all options understood by nroff(1) except -i and -q. -e Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines using full terminal resolution. -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 widths. -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 zero). -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. FILES
