Fast lookup in BibTeX bibliography data bases
bibindex converts a .bib file to a .bix file, which is a compact
binary representation of the .bib file containing hash tables for
fast lookup, as well as byte offset positions into the corresponding .bib
biblook provides an interactive lookup facility using the .bix and .bib
files. It verifies that the file version number and bibindex version
number match its own values, and also compares the file time stamps
so that it can detect whether the .bix file is out-of-date with
respect to the .bib file. In either case, execution terminates.
This Debian package features a command line history mechanism through
the GNU readline library.
