If you're just looking to hack something together, tcllib (packaged
for Ubuntu/Debian) contains a BibTeX parser and it can trivially be
accessed via ltcltk (available through luarocks):
tcl = require("ltcl").new()
tcl:call("package", "require", "bibtex")
bibtable = tcl:call("::bibtex::parse", mybibtexstr)
I only have neatly formatted .bib files around, so I can't speak for
how good the parser is.
