       indxbib - make inverted index for bibliographic databases

       indxbib [ -vw ] [ -cfile ] [ -ddir ] [ -ffile ] [ -hn ] [ -istring ]
	       [ -kn ] [ -ln ] [ -nn ] [ -ofile ] [ -tn ] [ filename... ]

       indxbib makes an inverted index	for  the  bibliographic	 databases  in
       filename...   for  use  with  refer(1),	lookbib(1), and lkbib(1).  The
       index will be named filename.i; the index is  written  to  a  temporary
       file  which  is then renamed to this.  If no filenames are given on the
       command line because the -f option has been used, and no -o  option  is
       given, the index will be named Ind.i.

       Bibliographic  databases	 are  divided  into  records  by  blank lines.
       Within a record, each fields starts with a % character at the beginning
       of  a  line.  Fields have a one letter name which follows the % charac‐

       The values set by the -c, -n, -l and  -t	 options  are  stored  in  the
       index; when the index is searched, keys will be discarded and truncated
       in a manner appropriate to these options; the  original	keys  will  be
       used  for verifying that any record found using the index actually con‐
       tains the keys.	This means that a user	of  an	index  need  not  know
       whether	these options were used in the creation of the index, provided
       that not all the keys to be searched for would have been discarded dur‐
       ing  indexing  and that the user supplies at least the part of each key
       that would have remained after being truncated  during  indexing.   The
       value set by the -i option is also stored in the index and will be used
       in verifying records found using the index.

       It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its

       -v     Print the version number.

       -w     Index whole files.  Each file is a separate record.

       -cfile Read   the   list	  of   common	words  from  file  instead  of

       -ddir  Use dir as the pathname of  the  current	working	 directory  to
	      store in the index, instead of the path printed by pwd(1).  Usu‐
	      ally dir will be a symbolic link that points  to	the  directory
	      printed by pwd(1).

       -ffile Read  the	 files	to  be indexed from file.  If file is -, files
	      will be read from the standard input.   The  -f  option  can  be
	      given at most once.

	      Don't  index  the	 contents of fields whose names are in string.
	      Initially string is XYZ.

       -hn    Use the first prime greater than or equal to n for the  size  of
	      the  hash table.	Larger values of n will usually make searching
	      faster, but will make the index larger and indxbib use more mem‐
	      ory.  Initially n is 997.

       -kn    Use at most n keys per input record.  Initially n is 100.

       -ln    Discard keys that are shorter than n.  Initially n is 3.

       -nn    Discard the n most common words.	Initially n is 100.

	      The index should be named basename.i.

       -tn    Truncate keys to n.  Initially n is 6.

       filename.i     Index.

       Ind.i	      Default index name.

		      List of common words.

       indxbibXXXXXX  Temporary file.
