TeXShop's preferences allow only to use bibtex or jbibtex. In its  
preferences list an option *seems* to exist:


Since the value for the key BibtexCommand is a string, one could  
assume that setting it to another value could succeed. So you might  
try on the command-line:

	defaults write TeXShop BibtexCommand <the name of your engine file>

If this fails you could rename your engine file to jbibtex and select  
this BibTeX variant in the preferences. If TeXShop still fails to use  
your script, then you'd need to install it in /usr/local/texlive/2008/ 
bin/universal-darwin as jbibtex ...

Mit friedvollen Grüßen


Treffen sich zwei Funktionen.
Sagt die eine: „Verschwinde oder ich differenzier' dich!“
Erwidert die andere: „Ätsch, ich bin exponentiell!“
