# Micro bibliography inside LaTeX file without filecontents

How to make nice "micro" (with just a few entires) bibliography inside LaTeX file ?

Requirement:

• not using filecontents
• only running pdflatex file.tex (might be multiple of times)

I know it's quite limiting (that's why I have problem...), but on the other hand, curious, how to add just a few entries "manually".

I can handle even manually with numbering of references and their layout, so question could be : how to layout manually to achieve same effect as with BibTex or BibLatex ? But maybe there is some middle ground between doing whole stuff totally manually, and using additional external tools with additional runs.

You still have the good ol' \begin{thebibliography}{99}\bibitem.... \end{thebibliography} –  percusse Aug 28 '12 at 22:57

If you go the traditional way with BibTeX, you can then replace the \bibliographystyle and \bibliography commands with the contents of the .bbl file. –  egreg Aug 28 '12 at 22:58
@Werner Ah, of course. –  percusse Aug 28 '12 at 22:59
Thanks you all. Thanks to clues I've found solution immediately, which I've provided for benefit to other tex.SE users. –  Grzegorz Wierzowiecki Aug 28 '12 at 23:10
