        cb2bib                                             Start cb2Bib extraction panel

        cb2bib --conf                                      Start cb2Bib in USB mode
        cb2bib --doc2bib *.pdf references.bib              Extract references from PDF title pages

 Notes:
  -Use switch --conf to particularize specific settings for specific actions.
  -The file cb2bib.conf must be readable and writable. If it does not exist, the cb2Bib will create one
   based on predefined defaults.
  -If starting the cb2Bib from a removable media, use the command 'cb2bib --conf' without configuration
   filename. Settings will be read from and written to /cb2bib/full/path/cb2bib.conf, being therefore
   independent of the mounting address that the host computer will provide.
  -To import references from a browser select when asked c2bimport, which expands to 'cb2bib --import %f'.
   The browser will provide the temporary reference filename.
  -A number of factors influence the reliability of automatic extractions. Consider writing customized
   regular expressions and network queries, and use metadata when available.

 Important:
  -The commands --doc2bib and --txt2bib do not append the references to the references.bib. They create
   a new file, or silently overwrite it if already exists.
