bibtex: Parse, format and processing BibTeX files

[ bsd3, library, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package allows parsing, formatting and processing of BibTeX files. BibTeX files are databases for literature for the natbib package of the LaTeX typesetting system.

The package contains two examples:

Both examples will be build as stand-alone executable when running

cabal install -fbuildExamples bibtex

For the first example see the "tex" directory of this package. You can start the program and build an example document by running

make pubs

Technically the program generates a list of custom \nocite commands for the LaTeX package multibib. You can add the custom bibtex field subtype to BibTeX entries for more detailed categorization of an entry. See "tex/publications.bib" for examples.

The second example can be executed using

make hackbib

The file hackage.bib is written to the current directory. The program reads an uncompressed tar archive from standard input and writes the result bibliography file to standard output.
