    refer, lookbib - find and insert literature references in


    refer [ option ] ...
    lookbib [ file ] ...


    _L_o_o_k_b_i_b accepts keywords from the standard input and
    searches a bibliographic data base for references that con-
    tain those keywords anywhere in title, author, journal name,
    etc.  Matching references are printed on the standard out-
    put.  Blank lines are taken as delimiters between queries.
    _R_e_f_e_r is a preprocessor for _n_r_o_f_f or _t_r_o_f_f(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 con-
    tain keywords as for _l_o_o_k_b_i_b, and are replaced by informa-
    tion 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 _t_r_o_f_f strings.  Macro packages such as _m_s(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:
    -a_r   Reverse the first _r author names (Jones, J. A. instead
          of J. A. Jones).  If _r is omitted all author names are
    -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 _s_t_r_i_n_g.
    -e    Instead of leaving the references where encountered,
          accumulate them until a sequence of the form
          is encountered, and then write out all references col-
          lected so far.  Collapse references to the same
    -k_x   Instead of numbering references, use labels as
          specified in a reference data line beginning %_x; by
          default _x is L.
    -l_m,_n Instead of numbering references, use labels made from
          the senior author's last name and the year of publica-
          tion.  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
          _k_e_y_s string; permute reference numbers in text accord-
          ingly.  Implies -e.  The key-letters in _k_e_y_s may be
          followed 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 _p_u_b_i_n_d_e_x(1) They can be searched more rapidly by running
    _p_u_b_i_n_d_e_x(1) on them before using _r_e_f_e_r; failure to index
    results in a linear search.
    When _r_e_f_e_r is used with _e_q_n, _n_e_q_n or _t_b_l, _r_e_f_e_r should be
    first, to minimize the volume of data passed through pipes.
