Package FAQ   : http://www.dickimaw-books.com/faqs/glossariesfaq.html

This package is provided to assist generating glossaries.
The package supports acronyms and multiple glossaries.
New entries are defined to have a name and description (and
optionally an associated symbol). Plural forms can also be
specified.  New glossary styles can be defined, and preambles
and postambles can be specified. There is provision for loading
a database of terms, only terms used in the text will be added
to the relevant glossary.

*This package replaces the glossary package which is now obsolete.*

glossaries-accsupp.sty is an experimental package that uses the
accsupp package to provide accessibility support for the
glossaries package.

The mfirstuc package is now a separate bundle.


See INSTALL file for installation instructions.


xkeyval *at least version 2.5f (2006/11/18)*
longtable (unless you use the nolong or nostyles package options)
tracklang (to determine if any language modules need to be loaded)

If the supertabular package is installed, it will also be loaded
unless the nosuper or nostyles package options are used. If the
supertabular package isn't installed, you can still use the
glossaries package, but you won't be able to use any of the styles
defined in glossaries-super.sty. If you want to use
glossary-longragged.sty or glossary-superragged.sty you will also
need the array package. If you want to use glossary-mcols you will
also need the multicol package.

Note that the current version of the glossaries package doesn't
load xspace.

If you want to use the experimental glossaries-accsupp.sty
you will also need the accsupp package.


This package comes with a LaTeX2HTML style files glossaries.perl and
mfirstuc.perl which should be placed in the relevant LaTeX2HTML
styles directory, but note that these styles only supply a sub-set
of the commands provided by glossaries.sty and mfirstuc.sty, so some
commands may not be implemented or may be implemented in a different

glos­saries – Create glos­saries and lists of acronyms

The glos­saries pack­age sup­ports acronyms and mul­ti­ple glos­saries, and has pro­vi­sion for op­er­a­tion in sev­eral lan­guages (us­ing the fa­cil­i­ties of ei­ther ba­bel or poly­glos­sia). New en­tries are de­fined to have a name and de­scrip­tion (and op­tion­ally an as­so­ci­ated sym­bol). Sup­port for mul­ti­ple lan­guages is of­fered, and plu­ral forms of terms may be spec­i­fied. An ad­di­tional pack­age, glos­saries-acc­supp, can make use of the acc­supp pack­age mech­a­nisms for ac­ces­si­bil­ity sup­port for PDF files con­tain­ing glos­saries.

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.

This pack­age re­quires the mfirstuc pack­age.

The pack­age su­per­sedes the au­thor’s glos­sary pack­age (which is now ob­so­lete), and a con­ver­sion tool is pro­vided.
