Sometimes it is nice to print the full reference "on the spot", instead of in a reference section, like the fullcite command (or the verbose style) in biblatex:

\fullcite[knuth] --> Knuth, Donald Ervin. The Tex Book. ... etc.

The printing of a "References" section in the end should be optional.

Is that possible using optex?

Perhaps a MWE could be like:


\fullcite[optextug] % full cites
\cite[optextug] --- \rcite[optextug] % regular author-date
\usebib/s (iso690) op-biblist % printing optional

You can find a solution in OpTeX tricks and tips section. You can copy and paste their code and use their fullcite command (as well as readbib)
