Compiling .bdj for custom bst

Postby esmitex » Sun Nov 11, 2012 6:36 pm

I need to write a paper with a huge bibliography and the "et. al." should appear in italics but I can't get the bibliography style as required by my school and in every bibliographic style that I have tried "et. al." was not in italics.

I read online that it was possible to create a custom style using "makebst" with the shell. After doing it, two files were created on my computer : a ".bst" file and a ".bdj" file.

Now, I am trying to find out how to compile ".bdj" file everywhere online and I cannot find any solution. Besides, I recently updated my OS from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion and now when I am trying to run "makebst" again it doesn't work anymore. I have the following error :

  1. $ latex makebst
  2. -bash: latex: command not found

  1. $ tex makebst
  2. -bash: tex: command not found

I hope anyone knows how to fix this...

I have solved my problem of "latex commands not found"

I had to update Xcode and the paths for latex with this command line

  1. echo /usr/texbin > TeX
  2. sudo mv TeX /etc/paths.d
