The Text::BibTeX module provides functions to read, parse and write bibTeX
files using perl.
The package provides two fundamental modules for processing BibTeX files
(Text::BibTeX::File and Text::BibTeX::Entry).
In addition, the Text::BibTeX module provides a number of
miscellaneous functions that are useful in processing BibTeX data
(especially the kind that comes from bibliographies as defined by BibTeX
0.99, rather than generic database files).
