On page 29 of Tame the Beast, it says
"Roughly speaking, BibTEX reads three files, in the following order: The .aux file first, where it finds the name of the style file to be used, the name of the database(s), and the list of cited entries. The .bst file is read next, and the .bib file last."
When I compile by LaTeX and BibTeX, the files I have are
.tex. Why do I not need a
.bst file? If I want to use a
.bst file that I make up on my own, can I?
