bibtexu - UTF-8 Big BibTeX


bibtexu [options] aux-file


BibTeXu is the Unicode-compliant version of BibTeX. It is largely based on Niel Kempson's BibTeX8, and it provides a better support for UTF-8 by integrating ICU library. Therefore, BibTeXu no longer requires the Codepage and Sort order ("CS") file; instead, the method of sorting and case-changing can be controled via command-line options.
