Is there any way to control the minimum threshold for crossrefs in a bibliography other than using command line arguments?

The FAQ says that it is not possible to control this in the .bst in version 0.99c. Is there a way (in version 0.99d) to control this either in the .bib or .tex?

Cross referencing is handy so I'd rather not copy the relevant fields into each of the entries.

I don't know about BibTeX 0.99d, but there's biblatex 1.3a. :-)


  mincrossrefs=99,% Default: 2


  crossref = {Z99},
  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  crossref = {Z99},
  author = {Buthor, B.},
  year = {2002},
  title = {Bravo},
  editor = {Zuthor, Z.},
  year = {1999},
  title = {Zulu},



Some text \autocite{A01,B02}.

That's handy, but to use biblatex, I think I first need to get this answered. – TH. Mar 22 '11 at 13:56
