These perl scripts are used to access the ADS database in an easy way, directly from the shell prompt. They are useful to build a bibtex database, retrieve pdf files of a list of paper, or to make simple statistics. There is two sets of scripts : the first one, somehow older, is based on LWP::UserAgent to access directly ADS web pages. The second is a rewrite of the latter using the Astro::ADS library.
￼ Scripts using the LWP::UserAgent library
get_author.pl: produce bibliography in the bibtex format from ADS, given an author name and start/stop year
get_bib.pl: retrieve the bibtex entry of an article in ADS given its journal, volume and page.
get_bibtex.pl: retrieve the bibtex entry of an article in ADS given its bibcode ￼
Scripts using the Astro::ADS library
adsastro.patch: patch for the Astro::ADS library to take the Journal/Volume/Page information as an entry
get_biblio.pl: retrieve a specific bibtex entry and the pdf of a given astro-ph or ADS article
process_list.pl: retrieve the pdf and bibtex entry of a list of mixed astro-ph and ADS (J/V/P) entries
get_astroph.pl: get the bibcode of an article published in astro-ph, given its id number
get_bibcode.pl: get the bibcode of an article published in ADS given its journal, volume and page
get_bibpdf.pl: retrieve the pdf of a given bibcode
