lookbibtex release 1.43
To install lookbibtex and bibdestringify, adjust the Makefile
to any local peculiarities and type "make install".
Lookbibtex is released under the GNU Public License, Version 1 (Feb 89).
A copy of the GPL should be included with your Perl distribution.
Release 1.1 (28-Nov-90) fixes three problems of release 1.0. End
right curley brackets not in the first column were missed in 1.0.
Umlauts and multi-line fields with curley brackets are now handled
Release 1.2 (17-Jan-91) includes bibdestringify, a tool for replacing all
strings in a bibtex file. To support this, it adds the -s option
The speed in previous versions of bibdestringify was absymal. This
release, release 1.3 (26-Aug-91) fixes this with an order of mangitude
speed improvement. Documentation for both programs is also slightly
improved. Notice that the -k flag to lookbibtex has been renamed to -f.
Release 1.31 (27-Aug-91) fixes a couple of minor bugs. The @string
pattern in bibdestringify is made a little more general (to allow c++,
for example) [from Vick Khera <firstname.lastname@example.org>], and a bug in the
lookbibtex man page is fixed [from email@example.com (David Wald)].
Release 1.32 (28-Aug-91) fixes the usage string in lookbibtex
and improves the installation part of the makefile, both at
the suggestion of Henk P. Penning <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Release 1.4 (5-Sep-91) changes the order of the arguments to resemble grep(1).
At the suggestion of Tim Wilson <Tim.Wilson@cl.cam.ac.uk>,
when no bibtex file is specified, all files in your BIBINPUTS path
are selected. Makefile now automatically sets perl script paths.
Release 1.41 (11-Sep-91) Makes the bibdestringify matching a little more
general, and fixes a bug in the makefile.
Release 1.42 (29-Jan-92) Fixes a bug in handling of mixed-case @string's
in lookbibtex at the suggestion of Dana Jacobsen <email@example.com>.
Release 1.43 (7-May-92) Added ftp site to README document.
