NAME

       "LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX" - implements a BibTeX parser for LaTeXML.

DESCRIPTION

       "LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX" serves as a low-level parser of BibTeX database files.  It parses
       and stores a "LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX::Entry" for each entry into the current STATE.  BibTeX
       "string" macros are substituted into the field values, but no other processing of the data
       is done.  See "LaTeXML::Package::BibTeX.pool.ltxml" for how further processing is carried
       out, and can be customized.

   Creating a BibTeX
       "my $bib = LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX->newFromFile($bibname);"
           Creates a "LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX" object representing a bibliography from a BibTeX
           database file.

       "my $bib = LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX->newFromString($string);"
           Creates a "LaTeXML::Pre::BibTeX" object representing a bibliography from a string
           containing the BibTeX data.

   Methods
       "$string = $bib->toTeX;"
           Returns a string containing the TeX code to be digested by a LaTeXML object to process
           the bibliography.  The string contains all @PREAMBLE data and invocations of
           "\\ProcessBibTeXEntry{$key}" for each bibliographic entry. The $key can be used to
           lookup the data from $STATE as "LookupValue('BIBITEM@'.$key)".  See "BibTeX.pool" for
           how the processing is carried out.

   BibEntry objects
       The representation of a BibTeX entry.

       "$type = $bibentry->getType;"
           Returns a string naming the entry type of the entry (No aliasing is done here).

       "$key = $bibentry->getKey;"
           Returns the bibliographic key for the entry.

       "@fields = $bibentry->getFields;"
           Returns a list of pairs "[$name,$value]" representing all fields, in the order
           defined, for the entry.  Both the $name and $value are strings.  Field names may be
           repeated, if they are in the bibliography.

       "$value = $bibentry->getField($name);"
           Returns the value (or "undef") associated with the the given field name. If the field
           was repeated in the bibliography, only the last one is returned.
