The user may define new glossary styles, and preambles and postambles can be specified. There is provision for loading a database of terms, but only terms used in the text will be added to the relevant glossary.
The package uses an indexing program to provide the actual glossary; either makeindex or xindy may serve this purpose, and a Perl script is provided to serve as interface.
The package distribution also provides the mfirstuc package, for changing the first letter of a word to upper case.
The package supersedes the author‘s glossary package (which is now obsolete), and a conversion tool is provided.
