PoP 8 new features (13): Command line tools

Week 13 of a weekly announcement of new features of Publish or Perish version 8

On the 1st of November 2021, almost exactly 15 years after first launching Publish or Perish, we released version 8 of the software. After two months of "soft launch", we are now ready to publicise its new features. To do so, I will post about a new feature every Thursday. If you want a complete overview have a look at this blogpost: Publish or Perish version 8.

Advanced users only

For command line use and advanced users only we provide an edition of the Publish or Perish software that can be used from the command line in manual and automated scenarios to perform publication searches.

The Publish or Perish command line tool is distributed as a compressed archive (.zip or .gz, depending on the platform) from the Harzing.com web site. For details see: Publish or Perish command line tools.

The use of this software edition requires that you are familiar with command line use on the platform of your choice, in particular with the applicable rules for the quoting of meta characters and other text that has special meaning to the command shell.
