# [OS X TeX] Cite Bibliography script

There was an earlier discussion about a script to help with citations.
I
put together a script that will present a list of the citations in your
bibliography file.  Key features:

- can show the title in addition to the citation key
- can filter the output (ie, if you type and select "Arm", then run
the
script, it would only return entries that contain "Arm",
such
as an author "Armstrong" or a title "Arms Race"

I posted a first cut at this script about a month ago.  The current
version
supports both TeXShop and iTeXMac, and has some of the potential bugs
squashed (thanks especially to Daniel Becker, Thomas Schroder, and Will
Robertson)

- the script will run faster if you put the \bibliography{} command in
the root TeX file, and then edit the script to set the bib_in_root
property
to true
- the script can break with multi-line tags.  For example, if your
\includeonly{} tag spans multiple lines.
