comment Moving from PC to Mac: BibTeX problem
Andrew, thanks so much. Does that mean that the BIBINPUTS command is useless? I'm being able to do something I don't understand: if I use my editor (TextMate or TeXShop) it won't find my .bib file. Nonetheless, if I run everything from the Terminal (bibtex myfile.tex followed by pdflatex myfile.tex) and then go back and Texify the file from the editor, I will be able to get everything right. My guess is that from the Terminal the "right" aux files are generated, and then the Editor does the job well (rather inefficient). Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

comment Moving from PC to Mac: BibTeX problem
Ok, I believe that my problem is that I'm not able to use my centralized bibliography (it was reading an old version that I had placed inside a texmf subdirectory). I've been battling with this for several days now: 1. If I type kpsewhich biblio.bib (my bibliography) I get the right answer (the folder I included in the bash_profile file with BIBINPUTS) so if I understand correctly, LaTex is able to find my bibliography. But why do I keep getting the error I couldn't open database file biblio.bib? Thanks.

Thanks Joseph. If the .bib file is in the same folder as the .tex file the bibliography compiles fine. I don't want that, so I have saved the .bib file inside ~/BiblioLatex. That's when some of my references are excluded. I have already checked that the PATH is correct (kpsepath bib shows my folder). What do you think?
