allbib is a Perl script with Gtk bindings that I wrote in
order to help me deal with bibliography formats that are not compliant
with existing BibTeX styles, with document styles not covered by LaTeX and with
bibliographic records that BibTeX cannot handle properly, i.e. archive
allbib creates, modifies, searches in and checks files that are understood
by BibTeX, and provides an easy to use, hands on keyboard most of the time,
graphical interface for all these operations. allbib is inspired from tkbibtex, but
grew to be something rather different from it.
I use allbib for my current research project, which deals
with youth movements in the Romanian Kingdom between 1860 and
1916. The final product should be a collection of about one hundred
societies, with member lists, regulations, publications, reviews of
major actions that those societies initiated or only took part into,
references to laws and regulations dealing with the right of
association and with societies for secondary school and university
students, and bibliographies following the sections devoted to each society
I am trained in the Humanities and I am interested in Perl and Gtk,
and programming generally, only as a hobby. I wrote allbib for my own use.
