NAME
       lkbib - search bibliographic databases

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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

       -v     Print the version number.

       -pfilename
              Search filename.  Multiple -p options can be used.

       -istring
              When  searching files for which no index exists, ignore the con-
              tents of fields whose names are in string.

       -tn    Only require the first n characters of keys to be  given.   Ini-
              tially n is 6.

ENVIRONMENT
       REFER  Default database.

FILES
       /usr/dict/papers/Ind  Default database to be used if the REFER environ-
                             ment variable is not set.

       filename.i            Index files.
