Hmm. I haven't run into that error before.
Can you try getting the latest version from:
and see if you still have the problem?

This is great stuff! Thanks for contributing this back!
Mark Moll is the current maintainer and I'm also CCing the current
user list in case others will find this helpful. You and Mark shoudl
talk about the possibility of incorporating this into the head repo

> Dear Patrick,
> Thank you for making the wonderful bib2html.pl program. We are building our new group website, currently at http://tudelft-dct-ppe.com, for which we have used (and adapted, to be honest) your bib2html software. I think you have done us a great service by releasing the code, you have saved us tons of time and made the project all the more enjoyable.
> Our thinking w.r.t. the online publication list has been: the less hassle to update, the more chance that the thing will remain up to date. The way we intend to do it is to let one of the PhD-students pull all the group papers from Web of Science straight to BibTeX, say every trimester, and join that with a small bibtex-file for papers in press, and then have the student run a single command to update the database, the publication section and all other personal publication lists on the website. It had to be a less-than-5-minute job. That was easier said that done, but somehow we managed. Apart from the pages that your script makes, we needed to have a list of paper for each individual author, and a list of recent papers for each individual author, for inclusion in personal pages using <!--#include virtual--> statements. So, whenever the pages of the group are updated, so are those of the group members. I never like to see pages that list as "recent publications" stuff from 3 years ago, so we avoid that now, methinks.
> In the spirit of open software, I wanted to share the adaptations we have made and the little additional scripting to make all of this work for us. Especially the sed script to clean up WoS-generated BibTeX might come in handy. Please find attached a diff -c with your bib2html.pl and our bash script that glues everything together below.
