The simple shell script, findbib, gets a latex source file and finds the needed bibtex
records in the physics archive at WWW-SPIRES.SLAC.STANFORD.EDU.

References must be in one of the following forms:

 - A SPIRES key: eg. \cite{Witten:1996ep}
 - A new arXiv number: eg. \cite{0704.0001}
 - An old arXiv number: eg. \cite{hep-th/9703030} or \cite{9703030}.

SPIRES has provided a unique "two letter label" attached to each paper following the
Author:Year identification. For example, "ep" in Witten:1997ep. Of course, one has
to look on SPIRES to know them. However, eprint numbers, like hep-th/yymmxxx,
yymmxxx and yymm.xxxx, are also supported labels. This allows you to retrieve the
full record from just the arxiv numbers.
If no arxiv name is specified, the scripts will search hep-th by default. This behaviour
can be changed by editing the script.

The scripts use awk, sed, lynx, bibtex and sometimes latex to generate the aux file.
(Note that this shell script runs only under *nix.)

Further details inside the files.

Let me know of suggestions, improvements at:
billnaai[~at~]gmail{-dot-}com

1) Useage

findbib [-a] filename.tex

If the option -a is selected, the script will only add new citations. The default be-
haviour is to create a new bibliography with all the citations.


2) Installation

After you untar it:

tar xzvf findbib.tar.gz,

just put findbib on your path and render it executable:

chmod u+x findbib

You also need to install awk, sed, lynx and ofcourse latex.
(There is also a file, example.tex, that you can test the script on).

3) Acknowledgements

This script is a modified version of the script originally by Fabrizio Nesti.
