Thanks for the response.
Like I said I tried with and without the % only because it was
included in the examples.
the result of 'which urlbst' in Terminal is;

Some help with the installation process would help as I think that is

1. How do I "check that the path to the Perl binary is correct" ?
2. How do it copy to "/usr/local/bin" as I can see it in my
directory (alias in Library to teTex/bin/ ?)
3. Do I only copy the 'urlbst' file as the Perl binary. Folder contents;
What about 'configure' and urlbst.in which look like binary files too.
4. Do I need to copy the .bst files
to the texmf/bibtex/bst folder even if I do not intend to use them?
