       addbib - create or extend bibliographic database

       addbib [-p promptfile] [-a] database

       When  this program starts up, answering ``y'' to the initial ``Instruc‐
       tions?'' prompt yields directions; typing ``n'' or RETURN  skips	 them.
       The  command  then  prompts  for	 various  bibliographic	 fields, reads
       responses from the terminal, and sends output records to a database.  A
       null  response  (just  RETURN)  means to leave out that field.  A minus
       sign (-) means to go back to the previous field.	 A trailing  backslash
       allows  a field to be continued on the next line.  The repeating ``Con‐
       tinue?'' prompt allows the user either to resume	 by  typing  ``y''  or
       RETURN,	to  quit  the  current session by typing ``n'' or ``q'', or to
       edit the database with any system editor ( ).

       -a   Suppresses prompting for an abstract.  Asking for an  abstract  is
	    the default.  Abstracts are ended with a CTRL/D.

       -p   Causes  use	 of  a	new prompting skeleton, defined in promptfile.
	    This file should contain prompt strings, a tab, and	 the  key-let‐
	    ters to be written to the database.

       The  most  common  key-letters and their meanings are given below.  The
       insulates you from these key-letters, since it  gives  you  prompts  in
       English.	  However,  if	you edit the bibliography file later, you need
       this information.

	    %A	 Author's name
	    %B	 Book containing article referenced
	    %C	 City (place of publication)
	    %D	 Date of publication
	    %E	 Editor of book containing article referenced
	    %F	 Footnote number or label (supplied by refer)
	    %G	 Government order number
	    %H	 Header commentary, printed before reference
	    %I	 Issuer (publisher)
	    %J	 Journal containing article
	    %K	 Keywords to use in locating reference
	    %L	 Label field used by -k option of refer
	    %M	 Bell Labs Memorandum (undefined)
	    %N	 Number within volume
	    %O	 Other commentary, printed at end of reference
	    %P	 Page number(s)
	    %Q	 Corporate or Foreign Author (unreversed)
	    %R	 Report, paper, or thesis (unpublished)
	    %S	 Series title
	    %T	 Title of article or book
	    %V	 Volume number
	    %X	 Abstract - used by roffbib, not by refer
	    %Y,Z ignored by refer

       Except for `A', each field should be given once.	 Only relevant	fields
       should be supplied.  An example is:

	    %A	 Bill Tuthill
	    %T	 Refer - A Bibliography System
	    %I	 Computing Services
	    %C	 Berkeley
	    %D	 1982
	    %O	 UNX 4.3.5.

       promptfile     Optional file to define prompting
