I did.  It's just that the urlbst.pdf manual states that;

therefore I assumed that;


were the preconverted .bst style files which I do not need as I am  
converting a custom .bst file.

I have my .bst and pdf files in a created folder called 'texmf' in my  
User LIbrary.

I have now copied 'urlbst' and 'configure' into /usr/local/bin and it  
is found with 'which urlbst' correctly.

urlbst now works. My custom-bib file contains an url field so I had  
to make another without this
in order for urlbst to run, which it does. Just got to make a  
new .bib file with relevant fields and style type (i.e. including  
'webpage' and lastchecked and then test it again.

I did not need to install the included .bst files for it to work.  I  
am still a bit confused as to where 'urlbst.in'
file should go.  Currently it is in the urlbst folder in /Documents.   
urlbst seems to run anyhow.

Thanks for your help.
