A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should soon make its
way to your favorite mirror.

Thanks for the material,
Jim Hefferon


The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

Name of contribution: bibfile-reformat-pages
Author's name: Barak A. Pearlmutter
Location on CTAN: biblio/bibtex/utils/bibfile-reformat-pages
Summary description: puts .bib file page ranges into uniform format 
  (abbreviated or not as requested)
License type: gpl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Small gawk script to put all the pages= page ranges in a .bib file into 
a uniform format, either 1234-1256 or upon request 1234-56; 12-12 always 
scrunched to just 1234; squeezes out spaces around separator; can make 
all separators one-dash or two-dashes upon request.  Very very 
conservative: probably impossible for it to actually mess up a file.
