Gerd Neuge­bauer sub­mit­ted an up­date to the BibTool pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2.67 Li­cense type: gpl2 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A tool for ma­nip­u­lat­ing BibTeX files An­nounce­ment text:
* Treat­ment of empty val­ues for key sep­a­ra­tors fixed. * Re­source parse.exit.on.er­ror added to force a stop when a pars­ing er­ror is en­coun­tered. The de­fault is false, i.e. an er­ror re­cov­ery is at­tempted. * Er­ror mes­sages for pars­ing re­source ar­gu­ments im­proved. The usual pointer is used there as well. * Doc­u­men­ta­tion ex­tended to cover the exit codes of BibTool. * Some up­dates in the doc­u­men­ta­tion files for the new TeX live: re­mov­ing old font com­mands.

Com­mand line ma­nip­u­la­tion of BibTeX 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.
