cb2Bib is a program to extract bibliographic references from unformatted and non standard sources, such as: email alerts, journal Web pages and most interestingly PDF files.
This tool reads the clipboard text contents and process it against a set of predefined patterns. If this automatic detection is successful, cb2Bib formats the clipboard data according to the structured BibTeX reference syntax.
The cb2Bib tool helps writing short notes related to bibliographic collections. Notes are written using a minimalist markup on a plain text editor, and can latter be converted to HTML. cb2Bib includes an embedded text editor suitable for corrections and additions. This enables files to be manipulated directly from a cb2Bib session. cb2Bib capabilities are readily available within the editor.
