macro that automatically generates an index in tex

Post by Margaret R. Krom » Fri, 04 Nov 1994 07:55:47

Does anyone know of a macro in tex that will automatically generate
an index in three column format by marking particular words within a book?

I would appreciate any feedback on this matter as soon as possible.

1. macros to generate index entries with page range and visual directive

I'm using macros to generate index entries, some with page ranges,
some with visual directives, some with both.





But these generate MakeIndex warnings, and LaTeX errors.  I've read
the Companion, Kopka&Daly till I'm blue in the face, and can't figure
out what's wrong.

A typical .idx entry from \ixmon looks like:

The corresponding line in the .ind file is

  \item \texttt {ADDVAR} macro, 243, 244, 269, \({346}, 345--346

My .ist file is just:

heading_prefix   "{\\bfseries\\hfil\\fbox{ "
heading_suffix   " }\\hfil}\\nopagebreak\n"
headings_flag       1
