lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that contain the
keys key... and prints any references found on the standard output.
lkbib will search any databases given by -p options, and then a default
database. The default database is taken from the REFER environment
variable if it is set, otherwise it is /usr/share/dict/papers/Ind. For

by indxbib(1) exists, then it will be searched instead; each index can
cover multiple databases.

tially n is 6.
