Projects / bibcursed


Bibcursed is a simple curses-based editor for BibTeX bibliography files, especially useful for those who have to maintain a large number of references for a major piece of documentation, like a PhD thesis. It performs everyday functions such as adding, removing and viewing reference entries. Intelligent prompting for fields is used when adding entries so that authors do not have to rely on memory for knowing which fields can and cannot be used for different entry types.

            Release Notes: Fixed a problem where more then one record matches the keyword in the `change' option, stopped the program adding lines to the start of the BibTeX file (not a problem, but they were a pain), added some more on-line help. Please note that version 2 (out soon) will be released with a different name to avoid a clash with another 'bibtool' (see homepage).
