It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

DESCRIPTION

lkbib searches bibliographic databases for references that contain the keys key... and prints any references found on the standard output. lkbib will search any databases given by -p options, and then a default database. The default database is taken from the REFER environment variable if it is set, otherwise it is /usr/dict/papers/Ind.
