       lookbib - search bibliographic databases

       lookbib [ -v ] [ -istring ] [ -tn ] filename...

       lookbib	prints	a  prompt  on  the standard error (unless the standard
       input is not a terminal), reads from the standard input a line contain‐
       ing a set of keywords, searches the bibliographic databases filename...
       for references containing those keywords, prints any  references	 found
       on  the	standard  output,  and	repeats	 this process until the end of
       input.  For each database filename to be searched, if  an  index	 file‐
       name.i  created by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be searched instead;
       each index can cover multiple databases.

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

       -v     Print the version number.

	      When  searching files for which no index exists, ignore the con‐
	      tents of fields whose names are in string.

       -tn    Only require the first n characters of keys to be	 given.	  Ini‐
	      tially n is 6.

       filename.i  Index files.
