Bibliographies: Easy Citation Example 1

This example has been “moved” to

This is an example of how to use easy citations. Just look at the source of this page to see the details of how it is done.

Quick summary:
  1. Use cite(key) to cite items in the bibliography.
  2. Add items to the bibliography as
    : key : Text of this item in the bibliography

You use easy citations to cite items in a bibliography by writing cite(key) which results in [2]. This cites an item in the bibliography list that is automatically generated and placed at the end of the current page. One simple use for citations is have a list of various web pages that you want to refer to as in this example:

This page [4] is a wiki page, and the wiki engine used here is called PmWiki [3] and the easy citations is a so called cookbook recipe [1]. That recipe is required for the citations to work on this page.

Note that citing an item twice does not produce a new number. The use of numbers to refer to items in the bibliography is called using a numerical citation style. There is also a textual citation style, see ??? for an example on how to use that. You can change the citation style by adding a fmt to the (:bib:) directive.

How do I use it?

There are two steps two using easy citations:

You can have as many entries as you like within (:bib:)(:bibend:).

See ?? for further information and examples.
