Reference database and bibliography tool

'refdb' is a reference database and bibliography software. It helps anyone writing publications keep track of journal articles, books, and other printed or electronic material, to associate notes with their material, and to automatically generate bibliographies for all kinds of publications. The primary output formats are RIS, DocBook SGML/XML, TEI XML, and TeX compatible with bibtex/natbib; the package targets markup languages rather than word processors. Users can add other SGML and XML document types by creating suitable stylesheets.
