pubindex - make inverted bibliographic index
pubindex [ file ] ...
Pubindex makes a hashed inverted index to the named files for use by refer(1). The files
contain bibliographic references separated by blank lines. A bibliographic reference is a
set of lines that contain bibliographic information fields. Each field starts on a line
beginning with a `%', followed by a key-letter, followed by a blank, and followed by the
contents of the field, which continues until the next line starting with `%'. The most
common key-letters and the corresponding fields are:
A Author name
B Title of book containing article referenced
d Alternate date
E Editor of book containing article referenced
G Government (CFSTI) order number
I Issuer (publisher)
K Other keywords to use in locating reference
M Technical memorandum number
N Issue number within volume
O Other commentary to be printed at end of reference
P Page numbers
R Report number
r Alternate report number
T Title of article, book, etc.
V Volume number
X Commentary unused by pubindex
Except for `A', each field should only be given once. Only relevant fields should be sup-
plied. An example is:
%T 5-by-5 Palindromic Word Squares
%A M. D. McIlroy
%J Word Ways
x.ia, x.ib, x.ic where x is the first argument.
