LKBIB(1)               BSD Reference Manual              LKBIB(1)


NAME
       lkbib - search bibliographic databases

SYNOPSIS
       lkbib [ -v ] [ -ifields ] [ -pfilename ] [ -tn ] key...

DESCRIPTION
       lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that
       contain the keys key...  and prints any  references  found
       on  the  standard output.  lkbib will search any databases
       given by -p options, and then  a  default  database.   The
       default database is taken from the REFER environment vari-
       able    if    it    is    set,     otherwise     it     is
       /usr/share/dict/papers/Ind.  For each database filename to
       be searched, if an index filename.i created by  indxbib(1)
       exists,  then  it will be searched instead; each index can
       cover multiple databases.

OPTIONS
       -v     Print the version number.

       -pfilename
              Search filename.  Multiple -p options can be  used.

       -istring
              When  searching  files  for  which no index exists,
              ignore the contents of fields whose  names  are  in
              string.

       -tn    Only  require  the first n characters of keys to be
              given.  Initially n is 6.
