This should be at your lo­cal mir­ror. Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ......................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: bib­tex Ver­sion num­ber: 8-Dec-10 Author's name: Karl Berry Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /bib­lio/bib­tex/base/ Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: clar­ify bib­tex li­cense Li­cense type: other-free An­nounce­ment text:
All of the BibTeX-re­lated files orig­i­nat­ing with the Stan­ford TeX Project have been up­dated to clar­ify the li­cense, which was al­ways in­tended to be the same as TeX. There are no func­tional changes. This in­cludes bib­tex.web, plain.bst, btx­doc.tex, and so on. We have also folded the three apa­like files into the main BibTeX di­rec­tory, so that all of the orig­i­nal BibTeX files are avail­able in the same place. http://tug.org/in­ter­est.html#bib­tex is one list of BibTeX and bib­li­og­ra­phy-re­lated links. --Oren Patash­nik and Karl Berry

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.
