Convert .ris, Endnote .ris to .bib and vice versa

Here's a great set of applications, run at the command line, to convert various bibliographic citation formats from one to the other, using an intermediate (xml) format. This is great for converting Endnote .ris files from databases into BibTeX format as the BibTeX export option is not always available (e.g. for JSSR). 

To run these commands on a mac, either unzip the archive into you /opt/local/bin directory, or specify the path the files in your ~/.profile file by editing this file and adding the line:
    export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
