|Description:||Read and parse BibTeX files (0.53-3)|
The Text::BibTeX module serves mainly as a high-level introduction to the Text::BibTeX library, for both code and documentation purposes. The code loads the two fundamental modules for processing BibTeX files (Text::BibTeX::File and Text::BibTeX::Entry), and this documentation gives a broad overview of the whole library that isn't available in the documentation for the individual modules that comprise it. In addition, the Text::BibTeX module provides a number of miscellaneous functions that are useful in processing BibTeX data (especially the kind that comes from bibliographies as defined by BibTeX 0.99, rather than generic database files). These functions don't generally fit in the object-oriented class hierarchy centred around the Text::BibTeX::Entry class, mainly because they are specific to bibliographic data and operate on generic strings (rather than being tied to a particular BibTeX entry). Note that every module described here begins with the Text::BibTeX prefix. For brevity, I have dropped this prefix from most class and module names in the rest of this manual page (and in most of the other manual pages in the library).
