11.6. The References environment

Encloses the References (bibliography) section.

Two internal definitions and an internal length are shared by this environment and Section 11.7, “The Bibliography environment”; all three are referenced by Section 13.1, “The bib@list environment”.

%  Argument #1 is the sample citation number, e.g., [99], for
%  numeric citations.  It is omitted for author-year citations.

The section title is passed to the {thebibliography} environment via the internal \bib@title command. The optional argument passed to this environment is saved in the command \bib@sample. Then we force a new page. The epilogue does nothing but force a new page.
