# [texhax] bibitem, ~nocite in natbib

Hi,

I am trying to achieve a strange citation setup in a file I am writing
using the natbib package. I want the name I cite to appear in the text,
but not in the references! (This is because I have very limited space
for the document, and I would like to cut the references section as a
separate reference list in a separate document is also listing the
most of the citations, thus I would not like to duplicate it).

Example:

%% From the style file I am using:

% ....
\RequirePackage{natbib}%
\newcommand{\bibstyle at aas}{\bibpunct{(}{)}{;}{a}{}{,}}
\@citestyle{aas}
% ...

%% The document
%%
We all know that \cite{macko99} introduced this method before \cite{csiga01}.

%% The document as printed in the dvi:
%%
We all know that Macko (1999) introduced this method before Csiga (2001).

%% The references:
%%
References

Macko 1999, ApJ, 251, 1

%% And Csiga 2001 DOES NOT APPEAR in the reference list.

I have the feeling there there must be a hack for this, even if no
elegant solution exists.

Cheers
Gaspar
