pubconv [-options] <name>
PUBCONV is a program which converts text file of publication list to HTML, TeX, and Bibtex. As you know, in universities, we have to write a lot of documents with publication list in this year/these five years/all publications... and of yourself/your group/your students, ... and so on. Namely, in different formats and in different categories. In addition, when we write the Grant-in-Aid proposals, it becomes necessary to collect all the references of co-proposers in these five years. Thus, we decided to use the PUBCONV program to generate files in several formats (HTML, TeX, Bibtex, ..) from one text file. After that, what we have to maintain is only the ASCII file of our group.
% gzip -dc PubConv-version.tar.gz | tar -xvf - % cd PubConv-version % vi example.dat % make pubconv % pubconv -h example Command Line=pubconv -h example Input File=example.dat Output File=example.html Total Number of Output Files=13
After this, you will get a HTML file(example.html) from a text file.
It also generate tex, bibtex, and csv files.
|pubconv [-l] example||example.dat||example.tex||dat --> tex (-l, default) (style file)|
|pubconv -h example||example.dat||example.html||dat --> html (-h)|
|pubconv -b example||example.dat||example.bib||dat --> bib (-b)|
|pubconv -cg example||example.dat||example.csv||dat --> csv (-c)|
|pubconv -H -o HUDB.csv example||example.dat||HUDB.csv||dat --> Hokkaido U. database type csv (-H)|
|pubconv -d -i example.csv -o example1.dat example1||example.csv||example1.dat||csv --> dat (-i specifies input file)|
|pubconv -hatAy -o talk.html example||example.dat||talk.html||dat --> html, with some decoration|
For more instruction, please see the README file. Although this README file is for the group members of our group, in order to update the publication database, it may help you, too (I hope).
In Hokkaido U., the database was moved to a new system, but the old data are not transferred in a good shape. One of the easiest ways would be to register with a csv file, in a given format. (An Excel file is given by the University for Windows users.) The present pubconv program generate a csv file in this format with the option -H.
