NAME ^

 adsquery - tool to query ADS and print out the result

SYNOPSIS ^

  adsquery --author="Jenness,T."

DESCRIPTION ^

Command line interface to the Astro::ADS classes. Given some query parameters (such as author) a query is sent to the ADS and the result is sent to standard output.

ARGUMENTS ^

The following arguments are recognized:

--help

Print a usage message.

--man

List the full documentation.

--version

The version number.

--author

Specify the author to use for the query. Multiple authors can be specified simply by using the option more than once.

  adsquery --author="Author1" --author="Author2"
--bibcode

Specify a bibcode to use for the query. If a bibcode (or multiple bibcodes) is specified then any authors supplied are ignored since a bibcode is unique.

--bibfile

Name of a file containing multiple bibcodes. One bibcode per line. If the file can not be found the command aborts.

--count

Simply counts the number of papers that match the query and exits.

--useor

Use OR logic with the author list. Default is to AND the authors for the query.

--xml

Output the results in XML where the element names are the same as the query fields. The top level element is <ADSResult>. Default is to print a tabulated ASCII result.

--debug

Turn on debug messages. Default is off.

BUGS ^

Currently only a single bibcode is used for a bib query even if multiple values are supplied.
