       bibtex8 - 8-bit Big BibTeX version 0.99c

       bibtex8 [options] aux-file

       8-bit BibTeX is an enhanced, portable C version of BibTeX 0.99.  It has
       been enhanced in these areas:

       - conversion to "big" (32-bit) capacity

       - capacity selectable at run time

       - flexible support for non-English languages using 8-bit character sets

       - well matched to LateX2e and its "inputenc" package

       Oren Patashnik, the creator of BibTeX, is working on a new  BibTeX  1.0
       that  will  be  a modern implementation supporting large capacities and
       non-English languages (see TUGboat, pages 269--274, volume  15,  number
       3, September 1994).  He is content for this version to be released, but
       hopes that people will eventually migrate to  BibTeX  1.0  when  it  is
       released.  Its release date is uncertain at the moment.
