Comprehensive TeX Archive Network

Direc­tory biblio/bibtex/base

The intent is for the BibTeX program to be distributed under the same
terms as Knuth's TeX program, and for the BibTeX support files
to be distributed under the same terms as Knuth's support files.

If questions or problems, please write to biblio@tug.org, the general
mailing list for BibTeX (and other TeX/bibliography systems).  For
archives and subscription information, see http://lists.tug.org/biblio.

bib­tex – Pro­cess bib­li­ogra­phies for , etc

BibTeX al­lows the user to store his ci­ta­tion data in generic form, while print­ing ci­ta­tions in a doc­u­ment in the form spec­i­fied by a BibTeX style, to be spec­i­fied in the doc­u­ment it­self (one of­ten needs a ci­ta­tion-style pack­age, such as nat­bib as well).

BibTeX it­self is an ASCII-only pro­gram; there is, how­ever, a ver­sion that copes with 8-bit char­ac­ter sets. How­ever, BibTeX’s fa­cil­i­ties rapidly run out as one moves away from sim­ple ASCII (for ex­am­ple, in the var­i­ous na­tional sort­ing rules for lan­guages ex­pressed in dif­fer­ent parts of ISO-8859 — the “ISO Latin” se­ries). For more flex­i­bil­ity, the user is urged to con­sider us­ing biber with Bib to type­set its out­put.

In fact, it is best to avoid BibTeX in favour of biber and Bib, if at all pos­si­ble.
