( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a file of BibTeX entries. Each one looks something like this:

@ARTICLE{klitzing:nobel, AUTHOR="Klaus von Klitzing", TITLE="The Quantized Hall Effect", JOURNAL=RMP, VOLUME=58, PAGES=519, YEAR=1986 }
I need to run a search on the entries that will result in all the compleate entries matching the paramaters being in their own file. I know how to use files and grep, what I was wondering was what the best way of finding out what entry you're in is.

The problem with grep is that it just returns the matching line, which doesn't do me much good at all.

I could store each entry in an array and search it, but that seems very wasteful, so I'm trying to avoid that aproach.

Thanks in advance.
Good day, Meshach

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
