On Mon, 7 Mar 2005 Ni­co­las Markey up­loaded a new ver­sion of his pack­age Tame The BeaST It is an (as com­plete as pos­si­ble) tu­to­rial about bib­li­ogra­phies in LaTeX, thus mainly about BibTeX. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /info/bib­tex/tamethe­beast/ Li­cense type: dfsg Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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.
