BibTool – A tool for manipulating files

Command line manipulation of files:

  • Pretty-printing data bases;
  • Syntactic checks with error recovery;
  • Semantic checks;
  • Sorting and merging of data bases;
  • Generation of uniform reference keys according to predefined rules or according to user specification;
  • Selecting references used in one publication which are found by analyzing an aux file;
  • Controlled rewriting of fields utilising regular expressions to specify the rewriting rules;
  • Macro (String) expansion to eliminate the need of extra string definitions;
  • Collecting statistics about one or more data bases.
