lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that contain
the keys key... and prints any references found on the standard
output. lkbib will search any databases given by -p options, and
then a default database. The default database is taken from the
REFER environment variable if it is set, otherwise it is
/usr/dict/papers/Ind. For each database filename to be searched, if
an index filename.i created by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be
searched instead; each index can cover multiple databases.
It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and
-v Print the version number.
Search filename. Multiple -p options can be used.
When searching files for which no index exists, ignore the
contents of fields whose names are in string.
-tn Only require the first n characters of keys to be given.
Initially n is 6.
