Another migrating to biblatex type question.
In my thesis I have used something called the
footbib package. What this lets me do is create citations in the text, in some regular way, only the reference list appears as a footnote under a line covering the length of the page.
It is implemented using a separate .aux file that has to be processed separately to the main .aux file for the document.
The command to add such a citation is
biblatex also has a command called this, but it doesn't seem to do the same thing. The biblatex version seems to use use a number in the body of the text and then a longer citation index in the footnote (the reference to it is still in the main references section).
Now as the commands have the same name, this screams of incompatibility and even if I called
biblatex. There could be not immediately noticed problems caused (and it might not work at all).
So the question is, how do I do what I want to do with biblatex. It might make matters easier that I only want to do this on one page at the beginning of my thesis. I gather there is a
refsection command or environment that might do it, but I'm not sure it is the right thing.
