Date: October 9, 2003 1:21:25 PM CEST
A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your favorite local mirror in a day or two. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: BibTeX Database Generator Author's name: Pallav Gupta Location on CTAN: support/bibtex-gen Summary description: A simple interactive script to generate BibTeX Files. License type: pd Announcement text given by the package's contributor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This is just an interactive script that I use in my Latex work to generate Bibtex files. I do not like typing all the unnecessary details nor do I like copying and then modifying entries. So I wrote this small script to help you type only what you need in your (customized) bibliographies and generate a file which contains all the extra info. I just wanted to share it. Who knows, some might find it useful. Note that its not a bibtex file parser! I'll be happy to make improvments if someone (besides me) ever gets around to using it. You're welcome to email me to provide suggestions. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the package at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/support/bibtex-gen although you may get a better network connection by visiting a mirror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mirrors

bibtex – Process bibliographies (bib files) for or other formats

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

knows nothing about Unicode sorting algorithms or scripts, although it will pass on whatever bytes it reads. Its descendant bibtexu does support Unicode, via the ICU library. The older alternative bibtex8 supports 8-bit character sets.

Another Unicode-aware alternative is the (independently developed) biber program, used with the Bib package to typeset its output.
