BibTeX2HTML - A translator of bibliography databases into HTML

bibtex2html [options] <filename>

bibtex2html is a translator which reads a bibliography file and outputs two HTML documents that contain respectively the cited bibliography in a nice presentation, and the original BibTeX file augmented with several transparent HTML links to allow easy navigation.

specify the title of the HTML file (default is the file name).
give an additional header for the HTML document.
give an additional footer for the HTML document.
use BibTeX style string (plain, alpha, etc.). Default style is plain.
do not print the abstracts (if any).
do not print the keywords (if any).
produce both pages with and without abstracts. If the BibTeX file is foo.bib then the two pages will be respectively foo.html and foo_abstracts.html (The suffix may be different, see option --suffix). Links are inserted from the page without abstracts to the page with abstracts.
do not print the cite keys.
use the cite keys from the BibTeX input file (and not the ones generated by the BibTeX style file).
print URLs instead of files' types.
interpret the macro \url as HeVeA's one, i.e. with two arguments, the first one being the url and the second one the text to print. The default behavior is to interpret the macro \url as the one from the package url, which has only one argument (the url itself).
add a web link for that BibTeX field.
similar to -f but specifies the way to display the link (e.g. -nf springer "At Springer's").
declare that a field must be treated like the abstract field, i.e. is an annotation to be displayed as a text paragraph below the entry.
make a separate web page for each entry. Beware: this option produces as many HTML files as BibTeX entries!
produce a single document, inserting each BibTeX entry (the input) right after its BibTeX output.
set the background color of the HTML file (default is none).
set a style sheet file for the HTML document (default is none).
specify the charset to use in the META tag of generated html files. The default is the output of the command locale charmap, or if this doesn't work, ISO-8859-1.
use HTML DL lists instead of HTML tables to format entries.
use Unicode entities for some macros, such as &#X22A8; for \models, etc.
use HTML entities for some macros, such as &asymp; for \approx, etc.

read the LATEX macros in the given file. Note: bibtex2html does not handle macros arguments; arguments are simply discarded.
do not expand the abbreviation strings, leave them in the output file.

Select only keys appearing in filename. To be used manually or in conjonction with bib2bib.
exclude an particular entry.

sort by date.
sort as BibTeX (usually by author).
unsorted i.e. same order as in .bib file (default).
reverse the sort.
number entries in reverse order (i.e. from n to 1 in plain style).

do not produce any HTML documents but write to stdout the sorted list of BibTeX keys (one key per line).
do not produce a full HTML document but only its body (useful to merge the HTML bibliography in a bigger HTML document).
do not produce the _bib.html file. In that case, no BibTeX entry links are inserted in the HTML file.
give an alternate suffix string for both HTML files and links (default is .html).
give an alternate suffix string for HTML files (default is .html).
give an alternate suffix string for HTML links (default is .html).
specifies the output file. If file is -, then the standard output is selected.
specify the BibTeX command (default is bibtex -min-crossrefs=1000). May be useful for example if you need to specify the full path of the bibtex command.
ignore BibTeX errors.
be quiet.
stop at the first warning.
print a short usage and exit.
print the version and exit.
do not insert the bibtex2html command in the HTML document (default is to insert it as a comment at the beginning).
