Simple curses-based editor for BibTeX bibliography files

Bibcursed is a simple program to make life a little easier when using BibTeX bibliographies. It currently provides these main functions

Error checking is used so that the required fields have to be supplied, and incorrect fields cannot be entered. New entries are inserted into the ‘correct’ place in the BibTeX file
  • Clean and easy removal of entries
  • Viewing of entries and changing of fields
  • Easy searching of entries, including search by field
