As far as I can tell the three major citation packages are:
There already is a discussion on the relation between
biblatex here: bibtex vs. biber and biblatex vs. natbib However, the
cite package is left out, and I'm having a hard time finding anything on this stack exchange about the matter.
The linked question has me wanting to use
biblatex, however I don't know if
cite would be better.
So my question is:
What are the pros and cons of
cite compared to
biblatex and are there other packages in the jungle of citation packages? If there are other packages then; when (if ever) should I consider using them?
