Some scripts to parse RFC and I-D lists to a bib database.
Two scripts are provided:
scripts/mkrfcbib.py, which parses a RFC index file and generates a bib file of RFCs.
scripts/mkidbib.py, which parses a I-D index file and generates a bib file of currently active Internet-Drafts.
Two output formats are available:
- By default or with option
--ieee, the generated bib file will have the recommended format for IEEE magazines.
- with option
--draft, the generated bib file will have the recomended format detailed in the I-D draft-carpenter-rfc-citation-recs-01.txt.
For parsing RFCs, download the latest RFC index file in XML format and parse it
wget http://www.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc-index.xml scripts/mkrfcbib.py rfc-index.xml > rfc.bib
For parsing I-Ds, download the latest I-D index file in html format and parse
wget https://www.ietf.org/download/id-index.txt scripts/mkidbib.py id-index.txt > i-d.bib
Please for all the list of options, read the help
scripts/mkrfcbib.py -h scripts/mkidbib.py -h
