refer - expand and insert references  from  a  bibliographic


     refer [-ben] [-ar] [-cstring]  [-kx]  [-lm,n]  [-p filename]
     [-skeys] filename...


     refer is a preprocessor  for  nroff(1),  or  troff(1),  that
     finds  and  formats  references.  The  input files (standard
     input by default) are copied to the standard output,  except
     for  lines  between  `.[' and `.]' command lines, Such lines
     are assumed to contain keywords as for lookbib(1),  and  are
     replaced by information from a bibliographic data base.  The
     user can avoid the search, override fields from it,  or  add
     new  fields.  The  reference  data, from whatever source, is
     assigned to a set of troff strings.  Macro packages such  as
     ms(5)  print the finished reference text from these strings.
     A flag is placed in the text at the point of  reference.  By
     default, the references are indicated by numbers.

     When refer is used  with  eqn(1),  neqn,  or  tbl(1),  refer
     should be used first in the sequence, to minimize the volume
     of data passed through pipes.


     -b    Bare mode - do not put  any  flags  in  text  (neither
           numbers or labels).

     -e    Accumulate references instead of  leaving  the  refer-
           ences where encountered, until a sequence of the form:


           is encountered, and then write out all references col-
           lected so far. Collapse references to the same source.

     -n    Do not search the default file.

     -ar   Reverse the first r author names (Jones, J. A. instead
           of  J.  A.  Jones).  If r is omitted, all author names
           are reversed.

           Capitalize (with SMALL CAPS)  the  fields  whose  key-
           letters are in string.

     -kx   Instead of numbering references, use labels as  speci-
           fied in a reference data line beginning with the char-
           acters %x; By default, x is L.

     -lm,n Instead of numbering references, use labels  from  the
           senior author's last name and the year of publication.
           Only the first m letters of the last name and the last
           n digits of the date are used.  If either of m or n is
           omitted, the entire name  or  date,  respectively,  is

     -p filename
           Take the next argument as a file of references  to  be
           searched.  The default file is searched last.

           Sort references by fields whose key-letters are in the
           keys string, and permute reference numbers in the text
           accordingly. Using this option implies the -e  option.
           The  key-letters  in  keys may be followed by a number
           indicating how many such fields are  used,  with  a  +
           sign taken as a very large number.  The default is AD,
           which sorts on the senior author and date.  To sort on
           all  authors  and then the date, for instance, use the
           options `-sA+T'.
