# How to print, with biblatex, the bibliography with the whole content of my bib-file?

Should be an obvious question but Google fails to asnswer it :)

I am trying to fine-tune the biblatex output. To test the result, I would like to see how it works for all entries in my bib-file. Is it possible to achieve this without copying all keys manually?

Since this question specifically asks about biblatex, I'm not sure if it can be considered a duplicate. –  Caramdir Feb 28 '11 at 22:09
@Caramdir But the solution is the same, so this is independent of biblatex. –  Alan Munn Feb 28 '11 at 22:16
@Alan: But obviously it wasn't findable using Google, which indicates that we should have a separate question about it. Biblatex can, after all, be sometimes quite different. Also see locksteps comment to the answer. –  Caramdir Feb 28 '11 at 22:25
@Alan: The question suggests the OP might want the 'debug' style in biblatex in addition to the more general 'cite everything' situation –  Joseph Wright Feb 28 '11 at 22:37

\nocite{*}


should be what you are looking for. It prints all of your entries, including the uncited ones into your bibliography. You enter it somewhere between \begin{document} ... \end{document}

I'm including locksteps comment into the answer:

With biblatex, you can also write \nocite{*} in the preamble.

@texnic: If the answer was helpful to you, you could accept it when you're sure no better answer comes along. :-) Also, if you haven't already, you could upvote locksteps comment. In my opinion it really enhances the answer!! :-) –  meep.meep Mar 1 '11 at 8:21
Thanks. BTW, it is possible to use code samples inside blockquotes. –  lockstep Mar 1 '11 at 8:29
I would vote up the lockstep's comment and also that old an_ant's answer but I don't yet have enough privilege for it :) Guys, thanks very much for help. It's really stupid I couldn't find \nocite{*} myself, but somehow I spent about an hour with biblatex.pdf, Google and Stackexchange but failed to find what I needed. –  texnic Mar 1 '11 at 11:21
