I am trying to extract a bibliography from my .aux file and have done so successfully with bibtool -x file.aux > file.bib. However, I would like the bib file to have the entries in the order of reference/citation, rather than its default order that is the same as the original BibTeX file. Does anyone know how to do this with bibtool or with some other tool?


I found the answer - use the bibexport tool. It extracts in order of citation. Usage is just bibexport <file.aux> and it produced bibexport.bib.

  • It might be helpful to clarify how one uses this tool. – Adam Liter Jan 31 '14 at 2:26
