i'm using the latest custom-bib package and texlive 2009 and i am running tex on a .dbj to get a .bst for bibtex.
 is there a non-interactive script i am overlooking to avoid screwing up an entry while running tex makebst?
i would like to have citations of more than 5 authors printed out with authors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, et. al., and then citations with exactly 5 authors as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. here's what i tried :
i found the next lines in the .dbj and assumed that's all i need, and adjusted them to read (trimmed):
nmlm,%: Limited authors
x5,%: Maximum of 5 authors
m1,%: Minimum of 5 authors
mcite,%: Some other truncation scheme
mct-5,%: One, Two, Three, Four, Five et al
mct-x5,%: Five authors
.... but this still comes up author 1 et. al instead of author 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 et al.
