# Directory `macros/latex/contrib/hvindex`

```This package defines some macros as a
replacement for \index which makes
live easier. You have to type every
word only once to get it into the index
and into the text.

Save the file hvindex.sty in a directory,
which is part of your  local TeX tree.
Then do not forget to run texhash to update this tree.
For more information  see the documentation of your LaTeX distribution
on installing packages into your local TeX system or read the

## hvindex – Support for indexing

The package simplifies the indexing of words using the \index command of makeidx. With the package, to index a word in a text, you only have to type it once; the package makes sure it is both typeset and indexed.
