Reference manager based on the BibTeX file format

XmBibTeX is a Motif LessTif reference manager based on the BibTeX file format. It allows to add, delete, and edit references. The references can be saved in the BibTeX file format and also written on a LaTeX file that can be printed using LaTeX and BibTeX. References can be retrieved by several search strategies. Import of references from the Medline and Inspec file format is included. However, I found that the Medline file format is not unique. Up to now, there are import filters available for the “Ovid Medline”, the “PubMed Medline” and for the “Spirs Medline” format. It would be nice if some people could write additional import filters for other file formats.
