DESCRIPTION
       @g@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@INDEX_SUFFIX@  created  by	@g@indxbib(@MAN1EXT@)  exists, then it
       will be searched instead; each index can cover multiple databases.

	      tents of fields whose names are in string.

	      tially n is 6.
