Name

newindex - Create TIB index for CiTR documentation tree  

Syntax

$ newindex

$ lookup  

Description

newindex creates a TIB index on "tib" files in the CiTR filing system under the current working directory. The numbering system is compatible with newdoc(1). The INDEX files created can subsequently be viewed using 'lookup'.

newindex is expected to be run when the current working is the 'doc' subdirectory of a project. It will create a subdirectory '000.Biblio' in which it makes symbolic links to all 'tib' files in the directory under the current directory. This method (hopefully) avoids the problems of having too much string space used when building the command to build the index that was encountered in the earlier attempts a year ago.

lookup runs 'tiblook' on the most likely INDEX file. The search path used is basically '.:$PROJECT:$HOME'

For more information on tiblook, find some OLD Unix documentation. We don't seem to have it on-line.  

Example

$ pwd
/home/feijoa/horton/380.1/doc
$ newindex
Tibdex -- version 2.2, released 12/15/89.
10 documents   72 distinct keys  129 key occurrences
$ lookup
Tiblook -- version 2.2, released 12/15/89.
Enter keys separated by spaces for search, <return> to exit ...

Warning

Do not place any other files in the 000.Bilbio directory, as these will be deleted next time newindex is run.  

Known Bugs

The TIB software seems to only be installed on the Suns.

Because of the searching for the 000.Biblio directory, lookup can be slow to start.
