bibmradd man page

bibmradd.pl — add MR numbers to papers in a given bib file

Synopsis

bibmradd  [-d] [-f] [-e 1|0] [-o output] bib_file

Options

-d

Debug mode

-e

If 1 (default), add an empty mrnumber if a mr cannot be found.  This prevents repeated searches for the same entries if you add new entries to the file.  Calling "-e 0" suppresses this behavior.

-f

Force searching for MR numbers even if the entry already has one.

-o output

Output file.  If this option is not used, the name for the  output file is formed by adding "_mr" to the input file

Description

The script reads a BibTeX file.  It checks whether the entries have mrnumberss.  If not, tries to contact internet to get the numbers.  The result is a BibTeX file with the fields  "mrnumber=..." added.

The name of the output file is either set by the -o option or  is derived by adding the suffix "_mr" to the output file.
