BBL file extension - TeX/BibTeX bibliographic reference file

What is bbl file? How to open bbl files?

File type specification:

Document file type icon Document file type

The BBL file extension is used for bibliographic reference files used by BiBTeX, a program used to generate bibliographies, based on TeX typesetting language.

Instead of visually formatting your text, you enter your manuscript text intertwined with TeX commands in a plain text file. You then run TeX to produce formatted output, such as a PDF file. Thus, in contrast to standard word processors, your document is a separate file that does not pretend to be a representation of the final typeset output, and so can be easily edited and manipulated.
