README

[EDB-maintainer notes; original README follows pagebreak.

 to play:
  (require 'database)
  (add-to-list 'db-format-file-path default-directory)
  (load-file "btxdb.el")
  (btxdb-find-file "examples/bibtex.bib")

 second step is to enable finding *.fmt files, ymmv.

This directory contains some hacked code which might become a BibTeX
interface for the GNU Emacs Database (EDB) someday.

Note: This version *requires* EDB Version 1.15 or later, since it uses
      the new argument order in RECORD-SET-FIELD.

No promises, no warranty, no documentation ...

Emacs 19 has a `fixed' (i.e. POSIXLY_CORRECT) regex.c, which is
exponentially slow for some cases.  Unfortunately EDB's
DISPLAYTYPE-REGEXP is one of those (this is a good chance to laern,
what `exponentially slow' really means :-).  If you do not use the
abbreviated displayspecs without commata, you can apply the following
patch to EDB:
