       bibtex8 - 8-bit Big BibTeX version 0.99c


       bibtex8 [options] aux-file


       8-bit BibTeX is an enhanced, portable C version of BibTeX 0.99.  It has
       been enhanced in these areas:

       - conversion to "big" (32-bit) capacity

       - capacity selectable at run time

       - flexible support for non-English languages using 8-bit character sets

       - well matched to LateX2e and its "inputenc" package

       Oren  Patashnik,  the creator of BibTeX, is working on a new BibTeX 1.0
       that will be a modern implementation supporting  large  capacities  and
       non-English  languages  (see TUGboat, pages 269--274, volume 15, number
       3, September 1994).  He is content for this version to be released, but
       hopes  that  people  will  eventually  migrate to BibTeX 1.0 when it is
       released.  Its release date is uncertain at the moment.
