       lkbib - search bibliographic databases


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


       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 variable if it  is  set,  otherwise  it  is  /usr/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.


       It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

       -v     Print the version number.

              Search filename.  Multiple -p options can be used.

              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.


       REFER  Default database.


       /usr/dict/papers/Ind  Default database to be used if the REFER environment variable is not

       filename.i            Index files.


       refer(1), lookbib(1), indxbib(1)
