       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

       -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 set.

       filename.i            Index files.
