## Extract only needed citations from large bibfiles

I like to use cryptobib , because it gives me consistent results and it contains almost everything relevant to me. However, as crypto.bib is over 725000 lines long, parsing it to create the bibliography takes a long time. This means that my $\LaTeX$ compile jobs take much too long. I have now written a python script that will allow you to extract entries from large bibliographies. This script will take your biblatex .
