Output file. If this option is not used, the name for the output
file is formed by changing the extension to ".bib"
-u Do not clean URL fields.
Normally "bbl2bib" recognizes URL fields of the kind
"http://dx.doi.org" and their variants and converts them to DOI
fields (see also biburl2doi(1) script). The switch -u suppresses
The script tries to reconstruct a "bib" file from the corresponding
"thebibliography" environment. One can argue that this operation is
akin to reconstructing a cow from the steak. The way the script does
it is searching for the entry in the MR database, and creating the
corresponding BibTeX fields.
The script reads a TeX or Bbl file and extracts from it the
"thebibliography" environment. For each bibitem it creates a plain
text bibliography entry, and then tries to match it in the database.
We assume some structure of the input file:
1. The bibliography is contained between the lines
2. Each bibliography item starts from the line
bbl2bib -o - file.tex > result.bib
bbl2bib -o result.bib file.bbl
