I am having a hard time understanding what is wrong with the code below. When I run it in tex, I get an error input limit exceeded. The exact error is pasted below:

enter image description here

I am using texmaker to run the code.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article} %{scrartcl}

      title = "Scripting language",
      author = "Wikipedia",
      url = {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scripting_language},
      year = 2014,

    Strange. I was able to compile your MWE. Even if I cut out the \usepackage{filecontents} and put in the \bibliography-command. Could you please add some more info. Is this MWE really throwing an error for you? If so, please, include the error message as quote.

  • Please add the full log instead. This is a parsed log (by texmaker) and it does not always tell the whole picture. Btw have you tried deleting the generated bib file and aux file and the compiled again?
