addbib man page

User Commands                                           addbib(1)

     addbib - create or extend a bibliographic database

     addbib [-a] [-p promptfile] database

     When addbib starts up, answering y to the  initial  Instruc-
     tions?  prompt  yields  directions.  Typing  n (or <RETURN>)
     skips  the  directions.  addbib  then  prompts  for  various
     bibliographic fields, reads responses from the terminal, and
     sends output records to  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 repeat-
     ing Continue? prompt allows the user  either  to  resume  by
     typing  y (or <RETURN>), to quit the current session by typ-
     ing n or q, or to edit database with any system editor  (see
     vi(1), ex(1), ed(1)).

     The following options are supported:

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

     -p promptfile   Uses a new prompting  skeleton,  defined  in
                     promptfile.  This file should contain prompt
                     strings, a <TAB>, and the key-letters to  be
                     written to the database.

  Bibliography Key Letters
     The most common key-letters and  their  meanings  are  given
     below. addbib insulates you from these key-letters, since it
     gives you prompts in English, but if you edit the bibliogra-
     phy file later on, you will need to know this information.
