7.1 BibTeX invocation

BibTeX creates a printable bibliography ('.bbl') file from references in
a '.aux' file, generally written by TeX or LaTeX.  The '.bbl' file is
then incorporated on a subsequent run.  The basic bibliographic
information comes from '.bib' files, and a BibTeX style ('.bst') file
controls the precise contents of the '.bbl' file.  Synopsis:

     bibtex [OPTION]... AUXFILE[.aux]

The output goes to the basename of AUXFILE extended with '.bbl'; for
example, 'bibtex /wherever/foo.aux' creates './foo.bbl'.  BibTeX also
writes a log file to the basename of AUXFILE extended with '.blg'.

   The names of the '.bib' and '.bst' files are specified in the '.aux'
file as well, via the '\bibliography' and '\bibliographystyle' (La)TeX
macros.  BibTeX searches for '.bib' files using the 'BIBINPUTS' and
'TEXBIB' paths, and for '.bst' files using 'BSTINPUTS' (*note
(kpathsea)Supported file formats::).  It does no path searching for
'.aux' files.

   The program accepts the following options, as well as the standard
'-help' and '-version' (*note Common options::):
     Suppress the program banner and progress reports normally output.

     If at least N (2 by default) bibliography entries refer to another
     entry E via their 'crossref' field, include E in the .bbl file,
     even if it was not explicitly referenced in the .aux file.  For
     example, E might be a conference proceedings as a whole, with the
     cross-referencing entries being individual articles published in
     the proceedings.  In some circumstances, you may want to avoid
     these automatic inclusions altogether; to do this, make N a
     sufficiently large number.
