[Mac OS X TeX] bibliography database management?

Gary L. Gray


<x-flowed>I have been using EndNote for years to manage my bibliography
databases. It exports very nicely to BibTeX and accesses most of the
online databases for quickly importing references. I recently
e-mailed ISI ResearchSoft <http://www.endnote.com/> and they said
they did not know if they would be porting EndNote to Mac OS X and
would see what their users wanted. With this in mind, I have a couple
of things I would like to put forth:

(1) If you use EndNote and would like to see it ported to Mac OS X,
please e-mail ISI ResearchSoft:

<mailto:[hidden email] >

and/or

<mailto:[hidden email]>

and let them know.

(2) If EndNote doesn't appear for Mac OS X, does anyone have any
suggestions on what to use for bibliography management under OS X?

Best regards,

Well, no... I emailed David Eppstein (BibGene) yesterday to ask about OS
X. His response was "I don't have any immediate plans to port to OS X
but I'm guessing I'll have to do it eventually."

However, I've just been testing BibGene and EndNote and found that,
since all I'm interested in is BibTex (rather than integration with Word
etc.), EndNote may be an overkill pricewise. BibGene seems to be doing a
pretty good job although the interface isn't all that polished and it
wont connect to online databases the way EndNote does.

Both products seem to run just fine in Classic.

I've been working in my minimal spare time on a Cocoa app for managing
bibliography files.  I don't imagine app integration on the scale of endnote,
but Services might be a useful way to get things moving around.

The main thing I'm hung up on is reliably parsing the BiBTeX file format.  If
anyone has any references, documentation or example code that might help, then
I'd appreciate if you would pass them on.

Thanks,
Fraser

Well, one could see if Hienrich Giesen would be willing to provide the
source code for Bibliography.app from NeXTstep....

A little more information maybe at:
