A python program for generating "Labels" for BibTex bibliography libraries

  Wrote a small python program to generate labels for BibTex bibliography libraries lacking the label fields, so they can be used by TEX typesetting softwares who use a BibTex bibliography mananging standard (e.g. Scientific Workplace (I use this with Endnote) and many others). I put the file up on google doc. Open the program file with a text editor and change the filename in the first line to yours. This is sort of a small exercise for me to learn Python. I learned quite a lot on "regular expression" in script languages with this exercise and I am very happy I succeeded.
