REFER(1)										 REFER(1)

       refer, lookbib - find and insert literature references in documents

       refer [ option ] ...

       lookbib [ file ] ...

       Lookbib	accepts  keywords  from the standard input and searches a bibliographic data base
       for references that contain those keywords anywhere in title, author, journal  name,  etc.
       Matching  references  are printed on the standard output.  Blank lines are taken as delim-
       iters between queries.

       Refer is a preprocessor for nroff or troff(1) that  finds  and  formats	references.   The
       input  files  (standard input default) are copied to the standard output, except for lines
       between .[ and .]  command lines, which are assumed to contain keywords	as  for  lookbib,
       and  are replaced by information from the bibliographic data base.  The user may avoid the
       search, override fields from it, or add new fields.  The  reference  data,  from  whatever
       source,	are  assigned  to a set of troff strings.  Macro packages such as ms(7) print the
       finished reference text from these strings.  A flag is placed in the text at the point  of
       reference; by default the references are indicated by numbers.

       The following options are available:

       -ar   Reverse  the  first  r  author names (Jones, J. A. instead of J. A. Jones).  If r is
	     omitted all author names are reversed.

       -b    Bare mode: do not put any flags in text (neither numbers nor labels).

	     Capitalize (with CAPS SMALL CAPS) the fields whose key-letters are in string.

       -e    Instead of leaving  the  references  where  encountered,  accumulate  them  until	a
	     sequence of the form
	     is encountered, and then write out all references collected so far.  Collapse refer-
	     ences to the same source.

       -kx   Instead of numbering references, use labels as specified in a  reference  data  line
	     beginning %x; by default x is L.

       -lm,n Instead  of numbering references, use labels made from the senior author's last name
	     and the year of publication.  Only the first m letters of the last name and the last
	     n digits of the date are used.  If either m or ,n is omitted the entire name or date
	     respectively is used.

       -p    Take the next argument as a file of references to be searched.  The default file  is
	     searched last.

       -n    Do not search the default file.

	     Sort  references  by fields whose key-letters are in the keys string; permute refer-
	     ence numbers in text accordingly.	Implies -e.  The key-letters in keys may be  fol-
	     lowed  by a number to indicate how many such fields are used, with + taken as a very
	     large number.  The default is AD which sorts on the senior author and then date;  to
	     sort, for example, on all authors and then title use -sA+T.

       To  use	your  own references, put them in the format described in pubindex(1) They can be
       searched more rapidly by running pubindex(1) on them before using refer; failure to  index
       results in a linear search.

       When refer is used with eqn, neqn or tbl, refer should be first, to minimize the volume of
       data passed through pipes.
