Update sqlite db 'URL' fields to point to local pdf's

From Bibus

Jump to: navigation, search

The following sqlite command will update the url field in each record of your db to point to a local pdf whose basename matches bibus' Identifier field, and has the normal .pdf extension. An example would be 'Jones2005#154.pdf' or 'Smith1989.pdf'. This assumes you have set the $FILES variable in bibus preferences.

UPDATE bibref SET URL='$FILES/' || Identifier || '.pdf' WHERE 1;
