This script should be the first choice for novices to create new SGML or XML documents for use with RefDB(7). If called without arguments, the script runs in an interactive mode and collects a few answers about the new document. Based on these answers it will create skeleton documents for both the short and full citation formats, as well as a custom-tailored Makefile that performs all necessary steps to create formatted output from the document.
Alternatively you can call this script from a directory that contains an existing SGML or XML file. Pass the full name to the script when it asks for a filename, and the script will try to guess some of the settings from the existing file.
The script can create the following document types:
The skeleton documents created by the script contain the appropriate prolog for the selected document type. The only extension is the declaration of an external entity in the internal subset which is required to include the bibliography.
DocBook SGML Versions 3.1, 4.0, 4.1 DocBook XML Version 4.1.2, 4.2, 4.3 TEI XML Version P4
basename The basename of the document, i.e. sans extension. If you want to end up with foo.pdf, use foo doctype Available options are db31, db40, and db41 for DocBook SGML; db41x, db42x, and db43x for DocBook XML; and teix for TEI XML pubtype This is one of set, book, or article for DocBook, and TEI.2 for TEI database The name of the database that contains your references. style The name of the bibliography style. encoding The character encoding of the document. css-file The name of a CSS file for the HTML output.
The Makefile is set up to process your document properly depending on its type. The following targets are available to be called like make target:
html Creates a set of HTML files. Creates a PDF file. ps Creates a Postscript file (SGML documents only). rtf Creates a RTF file. The Rich Text Format can be edited by most Word Processors.
Note Not all FO processors offer RTF output, so this target may not work for XML documents with your setup.
all This is the default if you call make without specifying a target. It will build all of the above targets. htmldist Creates a .tar.gz archive of the HTML files. pdfdist Creates a .tar.gz archive of the PDF file. ps Creates a .tar.gz archive of the Postscript file (SGML documents only). rtf Creates a .tar.gz archive of the RTF file. dist This will build all of the above archives. clean This will remove all built files, except for the source document using the full citation format. shortclean This will remove all built files, including the source document using the full citation format.
