NAME
       pubindex - make inverted bibliographic index

SYNOPSIS
       pubindex [ file ] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Pubindex  makes  a  hashed inverted index to the named files for use by
       refer(1).  The files  contain  bibliographic  references  separated  by
       blank  lines.  A bibliographic reference is a set of lines that contain
       bibliographic information fields.  Each field starts on a  line  begin-
       ning  with  a  `%',  followed by a key-letter, followed by a blank, and
       followed by the contents of the field, which continues until  the  next
       line  starting  with  `%'.   The most common key-letters and the corre-
       sponding fields are:

              A    Author name
              B    Title of book containing article referenced
              C    City

              E    Editor of book containing article referenced
              G    Government (CFSTI) order number
              I    Issuer (publisher)
              J    Journal
              K    Other keywords to use in locating reference
              M    Technical memorandum number
              N    Issue number within volume
              O    Other commentary to be printed at end of reference

       Except for `A', each field should only be given  once.   Only  relevant
       fields should be supplied.  An example is:
