NAME
       lkbib - search bibliographic databases

SYNOPSIS
       lkbib [ -v ] [ -ifields ] [ -pfilename ] [ -tn ] key...

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

DESCRIPTION
       lkbib  searches  bibliographic databases for references that contain the keys key...  and prints any references
       found on the standard output.  lkbib will search any  databases  given  by  -p  options,  and  then  a  default
       database.   The  default  database  is  taken from the REFER environment variable if it is set, otherwise it is
       /usr/dict/papers/Ind.  For each database filename to be searched, if an index filename.i created by  indxbib(1)
       exists, then it will be searched instead; each index can cover multiple databases.

OPTIONS
       -v     Print the version number.

       -pfilename
              Search filename.  Multiple -p options can be used.

       -istring
              When searching files for which no index exists, ignore the contents of fields whose names are in string.

       -tn    Only require the first n characters of keys to be given.  Initially n is 6.

ENVIRONMENT
       REFER  Default database.

FILES
       /usr/dict/papers/Ind  Default database to be used if the REFER environment variable  is  not  set.   filename.i
                             Index files.
