DESCRIPTION

roffbib prints out all records in a bibliographic database, in bibliography format rather than as footnotes or endnotes. Generally it is used in conjunction with sortbib(1): example% sortbib database | roffbib

OPTIONS

roffbib accepts all options understood by nroff(1) except -i and -q. -e Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines using full terminal resolution. -h Use output tabs during horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce output character count. TAB settings are assumed to be every 8 nominal character widths. -m filename Prepend the macro file /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.name to the input files. There should be a space between the -m and the macro filename. This set of macros will replace the ones defined in /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.bib. -np Number first generated page p. -olist Print only page numbers that appear in the comma- separated list of numbers and ranges. A range N-M means pages N through M; an initial -N means from the beginning to page N; a final N- means from page N to end. -Q Queue output for the phototypesetter. Page offset is set to 1 inch. -raN Set register a (one-character) to N. The command-line argument -rN1 will number the references starting at 1. Four command-line registers control formatting style of the bibliography, much like the number registers of SunOS 5.8 Last change: 14 Sep 1992 1 User Commands roffbib(1) ms(5). The flag -rV2 will double space the bibliogra- phy, while -rV1 will double space references but sin- gle space annotation paragraphs. The line length can be changed from the default 6.5 inches to 6 inches with the -rL6i argument, and the page offset can be set from the default of 0 to one inch by specifying -rO1i (capital O, not zero). -sN Halt prior to every N pages for paper loading or changing (default N=1). To resume, enter NEWLINE or RETURN. -Tterm Specify term as the terminal type. -V Send output to the Versatec. Page offset is set to 1 inch. -x If abstracts or comments are entered following the %X field key, roffbib will format them into paragraphs for an annotated bibliography. Several %X fields may be given if several annotation paragraphs are desired.
