indxbib - make inverted index for bibliographic databases


   indxbib [ -vw ] [ -cfile ] [ -ddir ] [ -ffile ] [ -hn ] [ -istring ]
           [ -kn ] [ -ln ] [ -nn ] [ -ofile ] [ -tn ] [ filename... ]


   indxbib makes an inverted index  for  the  bibliographic  databases  in
   filename...   for  use  with  refer(1),  lookbib(1), and lkbib(1).  The
   index will be named filename.i; the index is  written  to  a  temporary
   file  which  is then renamed to this.  If no filenames are given on the
   command line because the -f option has been used, and no -o  option  is
   given, the index will be named Ind.i.

   Bibliographic  databases  are  divided  into  records  by  blank lines.
   Within a record, each fields starts with a % character at the beginning
   of  a  line.   Fields  have  a  one  letter  name  which  follows the %

   The values set by the -c, -n, -l and  -t  options  are  stored  in  the
   index; when the index is searched, keys will be discarded and truncated
   in a manner appropriate to these options; the  original  keys  will  be
   used  for  verifying  that  any  record  found using the index actually
   contains the keys.  This means that a user of an index  need  not  know
   whether  these options were used in the creation of the index, provided
   that not all the keys to be searched  for  would  have  been  discarded
   during  indexing  and  that the user supplies at least the part of each
   key that would have remained after  being  truncated  during  indexing.
   The  value set by the -i option is also stored in the index and will be
   used in verifying records found using the index.


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

   -v     Print the version number.

   -w     Index whole files.  Each file is a separate record.

   -cfile Read   the   list   of   common   words  from  file  instead  of

   -ddir  Use dir as the pathname of  the  current  working  directory  to
          store  in  the  index,  instead  of  the path printed by pwd(1).
          Usually dir will be a symbolic link that points to the directory
          printed by pwd(1).

   -ffile Read  the  files  to  be indexed from file.  If file is -, files
          will be read from the standard input.   The  -f  option  can  be
          given at most once.

          Don't  index  the  contents of fields whose names are in string.
          Initially string is XYZ.

   -hn    Use the first prime greater than or equal to n for the  size  of
          the  hash table.  Larger values of n will usually make searching
          faster, but will make the index  larger  and  indxbib  use  more
          memory.  Initially n is 997.

   -kn    Use at most n keys per input record.  Initially n is 100.

   -ln    Discard keys that are shorter than n.  Initially n is 3.

   -nn    Discard the n most common words.  Initially n is 100.

          The index should be named basename.i.

   -tn    Truncate keys to n.  Initially n is 6.


   filename.i     Index.

   Ind.i          Default index name.

                  List of common words.

   indxbibXXXXXX  Temporary file.


   refer(1), lkbib(1), lookbib(1)
