Dear Rubies and TeXnichians,

I would like to announce the release of version 0.8 of isi.rb,
a converter from ISI Export Format to BibTeX Format.
(Formerly named isi2bibtex.rb.)
Get it at http://www-lab.imr.tohoku.ac.jp/%7Et-nissie/computer/software/isi/ !

== What is isi.rb?
isi.rb converts ISI Export Format to BibTeX Format.
This is a Ruby script. You can use this script as a library.

You can get the tagged Marked List in Web of Science by pushing the
[SAVE TO FILE] button.

== Copying
isi.rb is distributed in the hope that
it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY.
You can copy, modify and redistribute isi.rb,
but only under the conditions described in
the GNU General Public License (the "GPL").

== Who is the author?
NISHIMATSU Takeshi <t-nissie{at}imr.tohoku.ac.jp>

== Why did he write it?
Because he do not like the output format of the Perl version.

== Is there a Perl version?
Yes.
You can find the Perl version by Jonathan Swinton, Ben Bolker, Anthony Stone, John J. Lee
((<"in CTAN"|URL:http://ring.tains.tohoku.ac.jp/archives/text/CTAN/biblio/bibtex/utils/isi/>)).

== Where can I get isi.rb?
Please download isi.rb from:
((<URL:http://www-lab.imr.tohoku.ac.jp/%7Et-nissie/computer/software/isi/isi.rb>))

== How can I install it?
(1) Install ((<"Ruby"|URL:http://www.ruby-lang.org/>))
(2) Install ((<"Text::Format"|URL:http://www.halostatue.ca/ruby/Text__Format.html>))
(3) Put isi.rb into somewhere.

== How can I use it?
(1) Mark the articles in ISI Web of Science.
(2) View and save the marked records to an output file (savedrecs.txt).
    I recommend to check "Author(s)", "Title", "Source", "abstract*",
    "abstract", "keywords" and "source abbreviation" as the fields to
    include in the output file.
(3) Then, here are some examples:
 % ruby isi.rb savedrecs.txt
 % ruby isi.rb savedrecs1.txt savedrecs2.txt > savedrecs.bib
 % ruby isi.rb < savedrecs.txt > savedrecs.bib
 % cat savedrecs.txt | ./isi.rb > savedrecs.bib
 % ruby -r isi.rb -e 'while rec = ARGF.read_an_ISI_record; print rec.to_tohoku_DB(12345678,"foo"); end' my2003.isi my2004.isi

== I do not like the output format of isi.rb, neither!
The output format is defined in the source code WYSIWYGly.
So you can change by yourself easily.

== Known bugs
* none.

== TODO
* Write papers, not tools for writing papers.
