bib2html

One computer and one system-upgrade ago, I tried to convince people to set up their own MOPP (My Online Publications Page).

The essence of such pages is that they need an update, once in a while… I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it, but, I failed to re-install the package, following my own instructions.

Fortunately, there are plenty of good alternatives around, today. After playing a bit with bibtex2html, Ive settled for the bib2html perl script by Patrick Riley.

Included are well documented directions. The most important being that you have to do a

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/perl5 (( thank you Rupert, via the comments ))

and change the user-specific entries in the bib2html.conf configuration file (if you have already key.pdf files around, you can just drop them in the output-directory and set . as the paperfiledirlist, and they will be found and linked to automatically. If not, you can always include links in the bib-file). Further, if you want to link to web-pages of your coauthors, remember that the script expects you to use : LastName, FirstName | http://webpage even if you used a different convention in your bib-file.

The result can be seen here. For ebook-download-junks : Ive included again full PDF-files of all versions of my book (starting with version 1 from 1999 to the final published version of last year). They can best be found using the sort-by-type page.
