NAME

       bibtex8 - 8-bit Big BibTeX version 0.99c

SYNOPSIS

       bibtex8 [options] aux-file

DESCRIPTION

       8-bit  BibTeX  is an enhanced, portable C version of BibTeX 0.99.  It has been enhanced in
       these areas:

       - conversion to "big" (32-bit) capacity

       - capacity selectable at run time

       - flexible support for non-English languages using 8-bit character sets

       - well matched to LateX2e and its "inputenc" package

       Oren Patashnik, the creator of BibTeX, is working on a new  BibTeX  1.0  that  will  be  a
       modern  implementation supporting large capacities and non-English languages (see TUGboat,
       pages 269--274, volume 15, number 3, September 1994).  He is content for this  version  to
       be  released,  but  hopes  that  people  will  eventually migrate to BibTeX 1.0 when it is
       released.  Its release date is uncertain at the moment.
