2.1

2/10/2003

GENERAL

  • fix build process so easier on MacOSX's
  • add bibutils suite version stamp

XML

  • change name space: find_xmlstartdata() to xml_findstartdata(),
    find_xmlenddata() to xml_findenddata(),
    extract_xmldata() to xml_extractdata()
  • xml_extractdata() no longer takes pointers to newstrings and
    does not allocate them
  • make sure xml_extractdata() clears the output string so that an
    empty output indicates no tag
  • clean-up xml_readrefs() and move to library xml.c--it's getting
    replicated in xml2bib, xml2ris, xml2en anyway

NEWSTR

  • add newstring_segcat() and newstring_segcpy() to ease copying sections
    out of other strings

XML2BIB

  • fix xml2bib's usage of xml_extractdata()
  • xml2bib now passes a newstring of the extracted reference rather than a
    bare string
  • change bibtex output to use braces around each reference rather than
    parentheses (bibtex takes both, but WinEdt v5.3 is far more useful
    to the user if braces are used).
  • remove dead code, switch to xml_readref()
  • in process_article() tags were used for both xml and bibtex, which worked
    due to the way I set up the xml stuff, but is very difficult to ensure,
    so setup xmltags[] and bibtextags[] so they can be different
  • handle URL items
  • handle editors like authors and generalize process_authors() to
    process_people()
  • handle name suffixes in process_people()
  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags
  • add month/day support to bibtex

XML2RIS

  • fix xml2ris's usage of xml_extractdata()
  • legal tags can have uppercase letter or digit at second position, a
    change from the older (circa 1996) documentation
  • process_article() gets newstring rather than a bare string
  • remove #define for number of fields in process_article()
  • every tagged line must end in carrige return/line feed combination
    (ASCII 13 10), another change from the circa 1996 docs -- fix
  • REFNUM in the XML should map to the ID tag, not the KW (keyword) tag
  • add NOTES/N1, SERIALNUM/SN, ISSUE/IS, URL/UR
  • remove dead code, switch to xml_readref()
  • fix year output to handle year/month/day/other format
  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags

XML2EN

  • fix xml2en's usage of xml_extractdata()
  • process_article() gets newstring rather than a bare string
  • remove #define for number of fields in process_article()
  • remove dead code, migrate to central xml_readref()
  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags
  • switch from the tab-deliminated format to the "Tagged EndNote Import"
    format

RIS2XML

  • update tag definition so that second character can be either
    uppercase letter or digit
  • handle all journal tags: JO/JA/JF, picking the abbreviated forms
    (user-defined J1/J2 then standard JO/JA) over the full form (JF) if present
  • handle all primary title tags T1/TI/CT, secondary title T2, series title
    T3, and booktitle BT
  • take REFNUM from ID first, or build from author/year if ID absent
  • handle N1 - notes, N2/AB -abstract, UR - URL
  • handle AU/A1 - primary authors, A2/ED - editors, A3 - series authors
  • handle KW - keywords
  • add suffix support to name format
  • handle date format year/month/day/other fields
  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags

MED2XML

  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags
  • add month and day parsing

BIB2XML

  • remove dead code
  • add -h/--help -v/--version flags
  • add month and day support

XMLREPLACE

  • write program
