NAME
     indxbib - create an inverted index to a bibliographic  data-
     base

SYNOPSIS
     indxbib database-file...

DESCRIPTION
     indxbib makes an inverted index to the  named  database-file
     (which  must reside within the current directory), typically
     for use by lookbib(1) and  refer(1).   A  database  contains
     bibliographic  references  (or  other  kinds of information)
     separated by blank lines.

     A bibliographic reference is a set  of  lines,  constituting
     fields of bibliographic information.  Each field starts on a
     line beginning with a `%', followed by a key-letter, then  a
     blank, and finally the contents of the field, which may con-
     tinue until the next line starting with `%'.

     indxbib  is  a  shell  script  that  calls   two   programs:
     /usr/lib/refer/mkey  and  /usr/lib/refer/inv. mkey truncates
     words to 6 characters, and maps upper case  to  lower  case.
     It  also  discards  words  shorter  than 3 characters, words
     among the 100 most common English words, and numbers (dates)
     < 1000 or > 2099.  These parameters can be changed.

     indxbib creates an entry file (with a .ia suffix), a posting
     file (.ib), and a tag file (.ic), in the working directory.

BUGS
     All dates should probably be indexed, since many disciplines
     refer to literature written in the 1800s or earlier.

     indxbib does not recognize pathnames.
