       bibtex - make a bibliography for (La)TeX

       bibtex [-min-crossrefs=number] [-terse] auxname[.aux]

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.	 The complete documen‐
       tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or	manual
       Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       BibTeX  reads the top-level auxiliary (.aux) file auxname that was out‐
       put during the running of latex(1) or tex(1) and creates a bibliography
       (.bbl)  file  that will be incorporated into the document on subsequent
       runs of LaTeX or TeX.

       BibTeX looks up, in bibliographic database (.bib)  files	 specified  by
       the  \bibliography  command,  the  entries  specified  by the \cite and
       \nocite commands in the LaTeX or	 TeX  source  file.   It  formats  the
       information  from those entries according to instructions in a bibliog‐
       raphy style (.bst) file (specified by the  \bibliographystyle  command,
       and it outputs the results to the .bbl file.

       The LaTeX manual explains what a LaTeX source file must contain to work
       with BibTeX.  Appendix B of the manual describes the format of the .bib
       files.  The  `BibTeXing'	 document  describes extensions and details of
       this format, and it gives other useful hints for using BibTeX.

       The -min-crossrefs  option  defines  the	 minimum  number  of  crossref
       required	 for  automatic inclusion of the crossref'd entry on the cita‐
       tion list; the default is two.  With the -terse option, BibTeX operates
       silently.   Without  it,	 a  banner and progress reports are printed on

       BibTeX searches the directories in the path defined  by	the  BSTINPUTS
       environment  variable  for .bst files. If BSTINPUTS is not set, it uses
       the system default.  For .bib files, it uses the BIBINPUTS  environment
       variable	 if  that  is  set, otherwise the default.  See tex(1) for the
       details of the searching.

       If the environment variable TEXMFOUTPUT is set, BibTeX attempts to  put
       its output files in it, if they cannot be put in the current directory.
       Again, see tex(1).  No special searching is done for the .aux file.

       *.bst  Bibliography style files.

	      ``BibTeXing'' - LaTeXable documentation for general BibTeX users

	      ``Designing BibTeX Styles'' - LaTeXable documentation for	 style

	      database file for those two documents

	      database file giving examples of all standard entry types

	      template file and documentation for the standard styles

       All those files should be available somewhere on your system.

       The  host	 has a vast collection of .bib files available
       for anonymous ftp, including references for all the standard TeX	 books
       and a complete bibliography for TUGboat.

       version	of BibTeX.  Other ports of BibTeX, such as Donald Knuth's ver‐
       sion using the Sun Pascal compiler, do not have the same path searching
       implementation, or the command-line options.
