NAME

tib, tibdex, tiblook, tiblist - process reference and citation entries for TeX documents  

SYNOPSIS

tib [-d <directory>] [-i <include file>] [-j] [-n <initial citation number>] [-p <private index file(s)>] [-s <style file>] [-x] [-z] [-|] [<input file(s)>]

tibdex [-c <common-word file>] [-k <key number>] [-l <length of keys>] [-p <private output file>] [-z] [-% <string>] <reference file(s)>

tiblist [-d <directory ][-i <include file>] [-s <style file>] [-x] [-z] [-|] [<reference file(s)>]

tiblook [-c <common-words file>] [-l <length of keys>] [-p <private indices>] [<keyword1 keyword2 ...>]

 

DESCRIPTION

There are four programs in the Tib package:

Tib  bibliographic preprocessor for TeX documents,

Tibdex makes inverted index from database(s),

Tiblist  lists all members of the database(s),

Tiblook locates listings in the database(s).

Tib is a program to construct a bibliography for a TeX file and to include calls to macros files so that TeX formats the citations and bibliography in any of a number of styles. The input file is a TeX file augmented with incomplete or keyed citations surrounded by Tib escape characters. Multiple input files are separated by spaces on the call and amalgamated into one output file. If <input file> is omitted, one prompt is given. If the input file is named file or file.tex, the output file is named file-t.tex, unless the input file is stdin, in which case the output file is stdout. The following are the options:

-d <directory> Private directory of tib files.

-i <files> Include files of macros and tib commands. This option is used if there are private macro/command files.

-j Process files called by the TeX input command.

-n <number> Nonnegative integer to initialize citations.

-p <files> Private index files, separated by commas. The default is the file INDEX in the working directory.

-s <file> Style file, which contains formatting instructions and also may call other files.

-x Output to stdout.

-z Silent run. Informational (but not warning or error) messages are suppressed.

-| Pipe. Input is stdin; output is stdout. Silent.

Tibdex makes an inverted index from reference file(s). Multiple reference files are separated by spaces. The output is an inverted index for use by Tib and Tiblist. The output index must not be moved or the links to the reference files will be broken. The following are the options:

-c <file> Common-word list, one word per line.
Common words are not used as keys (default /usr/local/lib/tex/tib/common).

-k <number> Maximum number of keys kept per record
(default 100).

-l <number> Maximum length of keys (default 6)

-p <file> Private output file (default INDEX in the current directory).

-z        Silent run. Informational (but not warning and error) messages are suppressed.

-% <string> Ignore lines in the reference file that
begin with %x where x is in the string (default CNOPVcnopv\ ).

Tiblist makes a formatted TeX file of all entries in the input reference file(s). Multiple files are separated by spaces. If <input file> is omitted, one prompt is given. Unlike Tib, Tib list does not use inverted indices, but operates directly on the reference files. The following are the options:

-d <directory> Private directory of tib files.

-i <files> Include files of macros and tib commands. This option is used if there are private macro/command files.

-s <file> Style file, which contains formatting instructions and also may call other files.

-x        Output to stdout.

-z        Silent run. Informational (but not warning and error)
messages are suppressed.

-|        Pipe. Input is stdin; output is stdout. Silent.

Note: the -p option does not cause an error, but is ignored.

Tiblook locates entries in reference files from keywords entered at the terminal. If keywords are entered on the command line, it operates noninteractively, otherwise it gives instructions for interactive use. Tiblook, like Tib, works through inverted indices to get to the reference files.

The following are the options:

-c <file> Common-word list, one word per line.
Common words are not used as keys (default /usr/local/lib/tex/tib/common).

-l <number> Maximum length of keys (default 6).

-p <files> Private index files, separated by commas.
The default is the file INDEX in the working directory.  

STYLES

There are a number of styles (called with the -s option) available. See the full documentation or the file /usr/local/lib/tex/tib/doc/Styles.
