       jabref - graphical frontend to manage BibTeX databases


       jabref [options] [bibtex-file]


       JabRef  is  a  graphical  Java  application  for  editing bibtex (.bib)
       databases. JabRef lets  you  organize  your  entries  into  overlapping
       logical  groups,  and  with  a single click limit your view to a single
       group or an intersection or union of several groups. You can  customize
       the  entry information shown in the main window, and sort by any of the
       standard Bibtex fields. JabRef can autogenerate bibtex  keys  for  your
       entries.  JabRef  also  lets  you easily link to PDF or web sources for
       your reference entries.
       JabRef can import from and export  to  several  formats,  and  you  can
       customize  export  filters.  JabRef  can  be  run  as  a  command  line
       application to convert from any import format to any export format.
