SYNOPSIS

bibtexconv BibTeX_File [-export-to-bibtex=file] [-export-to-separate-bibtexs=prefix] [-export-to-xml=file] [-export-to-separate-xmls=prefix] [-nbsp=string] [-non-interactive] [-check-urls] [-only-check-new-urls] [-store-downloads=directory] [-add-url-command] [-skip-notes-with-isbn-and-issn] [-add-notes-with-isbn-and-issn]

DESCRIPTION

bibtexconv is a BibTeX file converter which allows one to export BibTeX entries to other formats, including customly defined text output. Furthermore, it provides the possibility to check URLs (including MD5, size and MIME type computations) and to verify ISBN and ISSN numbers.
bibtexconv provides an interactive mode (usually used in form of export scripts) which allows for fine-granular selection of entries, sorting and export template specification.

OPTIONS

The following arguments may be provided:
BibTeX_File
  The BibTeX input file.
-export-to-bibtex=file
  Write the results as BibTeX into the given file.
-export-to-separate-bibtexs=prefix
  Write the results as BibTeX; for each entry, an own file will be created. The filename will be generated from given prefix (e.g. "/tmp/MyBibTex-"), the entry key and ".bib".
-export-to-xml=file
  Write the results as XML (as used by IETF Internet Draft processing tools) into the given file.
-export-to-separate-xmls=prefix
  Write the results as XML; for each entry, an own file will be created. The filename will be generated from given prefix (e.g. "/tmp/MyBibTex-"), the entry key and ".xml".
-nbsp=string
  Replace non-breakable space by given string (for example, " " when writing HTML).
-check-urls
  Check URLs by downloading the content file and adding MD5, size and MIME type entries.
-only-check-new-urls
  Combined with -check-urls, checks are only performed for new entries where MD5, size and/or MIME type are still unknown.
-store-downloads=directory
  Combined with -check-urls, all checked references are downloaded and stored in the given directory. Existing files will be overwritten.
-add-url-command
  Add \url{} commands to url tags in BibTeX export.
-skip-notes-with-isbn-and-issn
  When reading the BibTeX file, ignore "note" items with ISBN and ISSN.
-add-notes-with-isbn-and-issn
  When writing a BibTeX file, create "note" items with ISBN and ISSN.
-non-interactive

Checks URLs of all entries in /usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/ExampleReferences.bib, adds MD5, size and MIME type items and writes the results to UpdatedReferences.bib.
bibtexconv \
  /usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/ExampleReferences.bib \
</usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/web-example.export >MyPublications.html
Uses export script /usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/web-example.export to export references from /usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/ExampleReferences.bib to MyPublications.html as XHTML 1.1.
bibtexconv \
  /usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/ExampleReferences.bib \
</usr/share/doc/bibtexconv/examples/text-example.export >MyPublications.txt
