On Wed, 6 Jan 2010, Gerd Neugebauer submitted an update to the bibtool package. Location on CTAN: /biblio/bibtex/utils/bibtool/ Summary description: BibTool: A Tool for Manipulating BibTeX Data Bases License type: gpl Announcement text:
BibTool: A Tool for Manipulating BibTeX Data Bases BibTeX provides an easy to use means to integrate citations and bibliographies into LaTeX documents. But the user is left alone with the management of the BibTeX files. The program BibTool is intended to fill this gap. BibTool allows the manipulation of BibTeX files which does beyond the possibilities --- and intentions --- of BibTeX.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/biblio/bibtex/utils/bibtool/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=bibtool (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

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.
