# Sorting and compressing citations

If you give LaTeX `\cite{fred,joe,harry,min}`, its default commands could give something like [2,6,4,3]; this looks awful. One can of course get the things in order by rearranging the keys in the `\cite` command, but who wants to do that sort of thing for no more improvement than [2,3,4,6]?

The [`cite`](https://ctan.org/pkg/cite) package sorts the numbers and detects consecutive sequences, so creating [2–4,6]. The [`natbib`](https://ctan.org/pkg/natbib) package, with the `numbers` and `sor & ompress` options, will do the same when working with its own numeric bibliography styles (`plainnat.bst` and `unsrtnat.bst`).

The package [`biblatex`](https://ctan.org/pkg/biblatex) has a built-in style [`numeric-comp`](https://ctan.org/pkg/biblatex) for its bibliographies.
