     by Holger Martin, Peter Urban, Armin Liebl

The program "bibview" is a graphical interface for manipulating
BibTeX databases. It supports the user in making new entries,
searching for entries and moving entries from one BiB to another.
It is possible to work with more than one BiB simultaneously.
bibview is implemented with Xt and Athena Widgets.
There are six types of windows in bibview
The main window contains menus for customizing bibview and
for working with BiBs on the file level.
The bibliography window one for every open BiB contains commands
for manipulating the BiB.
The list window at most one for every open BiB shows a list of
entries. It displays the fields author, title, type and year.
The card window at most one for every entry helps editing an entry.
It contains boxes for each field of the entry according to the type.
The fields can be edited by putting the mouse cursor into the field.
Macros in fields and the symbol for concatenation '#' are marked
with a preceding '@'.
