Note: Windows 64-bit systems no longer support 16-bit programs. The freeware program BibDB is 16-bit. It is included with SW/SWP as a convenience for editing BibTeX databases, but is not the only way to edit these files. A replacement that has been suggested is JabRef which has received positive feedback.
BibDB is a program for creating, maintaining and updating literature reference libraries, in a format which is compatible with BibTeX, the standard LaTeX bibliography reference format. BibDB implements a user friendly, point-and-shoot type, mouse-oriented (if available) interface. BibDB also enables extensive search and pattern matching to be carried out. BibDB is highly configurable, to fit personal taste and different bibliography styles.
BibDB is currently available in the following versions:
BibDB has built-in support for the BibTeX, Tib, Refer and a
generic comma-delimited format. However, bibliographic formats are many and varied,
so I don't plan to add any more in the foreseeable future. I do however maintain a
(probably partial) list of translation software written by
various people. If you hear of any more which are not on my list, I would appreciate it if
you could let me know.
