XdkBibTeX : parsing bibtex files made easy

Participant : Xavier Décoret [ contact ] .

This program provides parsers and utility functions for the BibTeX file format. The core of the library is a C++ compiled as a library. Based on this library, bindings for different languages are provided using SWIG.

The long term goal is to replace the bibtex program and its associated BST language for style files by a more recent and powerful scripting language (such a Python, Ruby, Php, Perl...) or by Java. The other goal is to allow easy writing of BibTeX related tools such as converters to other format. XdkBibTeX is used by Basilic to import from bibtex files. XdkBibTeX is released under the GPL licence and is freely available for download ( )
