I have version 0.37 of BibTex. I compiled on windows XP using cygwin and gcc. A string such as: author = {Karagozler, Mustafa Emre and Campbell, Jason D. and Fedder, Gary K. and Goldstein, Seth Copen and Weller, Michael Philetus and Yoon, Byung W.}, [Note that there is a ctrl-j after Philetus] Somehow zaps the Michael philetus part of the entry. I can't seem to find where to look. If someone points me in the right direction, will happily fix and send back a patch. Thanks, -seth --------------- seth@cs.cmu.edu 7122 Wean Hall www.cs.cmu.edu/~seth School of Computer Science phone: 412-268-3828 Carnegie Mellon University fax: 412-268-4801 Pittsburgh, PA 15213

This should be btparse fault (the C library that parses the BibTeX entry). Do you have a chance to check if the problem is a \n or a \r? Thank you -- Alberto Simões - Departamento de Informática - Universidade do Minho Campus de Gualtar - 4710-057 Braga - Portugal

It is actually \r\n. E.g., here is the od of the offending part: 0016360 65 6c 6c 65 72 2c 20 4d 69 63 68 61 65 6c 20 50 e l l e r , M i c h a e l P 0016400 68 69 6c 65 74 75 73 0d 0a 20 20 20 20 20 61 6e h i l e t u s \r \n a n Where in btparse should I look? Am happy to fix. -seth --------------- seth@cs.cmu.edu 7122 Wean Hall www.cs.cmu.edu/~seth School of Computer Science phone: 412-268-3828 Carnegie Mellon University fax: 412-268-4801 Pittsburgh, PA 15213 Show quoted text

Hi, Seth. I am not sure where to look. btparse and Text::BibTeX are not mine. I am just their maintainer, and I will need to search into the C code. If you have the time to help me in this task I would be quite happy. If not, give me some time to find out the correct place to fix. Seth Copen Goldstein via RT wrote: Show quoted text

Dear Seth, I am back on this (two years later... shame). Do you keep using Text::BibTeX? If so, any chance to check the reported bug with 0.40? Cheers Alberto

I think that this is fixed in the latest release 0.42. In fact I think it was fixed in 0.4, as AS says. I tried the example given in the report and it works fine for me with a linebreak in the specified place.
Seems to be fixed. Please reopen if you find it isn't :)
