indxbib makes an inverted index for the bibliographic databases in filename... for use with refer(1), lookbib(1), and lkbib(1). The index will be named filename.i; the index is written to a temporary file which is then renamed to this. If no filenames are given on the command line because the -f option has been used, and no -o option is given, the index will be named Ind.i.
Bibliographic databases are divided into records by blank lines. Within a record, each fields starts with a % character at the beginning of a line. Fields have a one letter name which follows the % character.
Print the version number.
Index whole files. Each file is a separate record.
Read the list of common words from file instead of /usr/share/groff/1.17.2/eign.
Use dir as the pathname of the current working directory to store in the index, instead of the path printed by pwd(1). Usually dir will be a symbolic link that points to the directory printed by pwd(1).
Read the files to be indexed from file. If file is -, files will be read from the standard input. The -f option can be given at most once.
Don't index the contents of fields whose names are in string. Initially string is XYZ.
Use the first prime greater than or equal to n for the size of the hash table. Larger values of n will usually make searching faster, but will make the index larger and indxbib use more memory. Initially n is 997.
Use at most n keys per input record. Initially n is 100.
Discard keys that are shorter than n. Initially n is 3.
Discard the n most common words. Initially n is 100.
The index should be named basename.i.
Ind.i Default index name.
List of common words.
