  • Ver­sion: 1.4a (2015/03/10)

The com­mands \toftagstart, \toftagstop, \toftagthis, \tofuntagthis are used to tag chap­ters, sec­tions or any other sec­tion­ing units des­tined to end up in the ta­ble(s) of con­tents. Then:

\nexttocwithtags{req. 1, req. 2, ... }{excl. 1, excl. 2, ... }
\tableofcontents % or equivalent command

spec­i­fies which tags are to be re­quired and which ones are to be ex­cluded from the type­set TOC.

For doc­u­ments with classes where \tableofcontents is only sin­gle-use, the pack­age pro­vides:

\tableoftaggedcontents{req. 1, req. 2, ... }{excl. 1, excl. 2, ... }

which does not have this re­stric­tion.


For ex­tract­ing the style file:

latex tableof.dtx

Files tableof.sty, tableof.ins and tableoftest.tex are gen­er­ated on the first la­tex run. Move tableof.sty to a suit­able lo­ca­tion within the in­stal­la­tion:

tableof.sty -> <TDS>/tex/latex/tableof/

To pro­duce the doc­u­men­ta­tion:

latex tableof.dtx (a second time)
dvipdfmx tableof.dvi

tableof.ins is for dis­tri­bu­tions ex­pect­ing it.

tableoftest.tex is an ex­am­ple of use of the pack­age com­mands. Run la­tex twice on it to see ex­am­ples of tagged ta­bles of con­tents.

tableof – Tag­ging ta­bles of con­tents

The pack­age pro­vides the com­mands to flag chap­ters or sec­tions (or any­thing else des­tined to be­come a TOC line). The com­mand \next­tocwith­tags{req1,req2,...}{ex­cl1,ex­cl2,...} spec­i­fies which tags are to be re­quired and which ones are to be ex­cluded by the next \table­of­con­tents (or equiv­a­lent) com­mand. In a doc­u­ment that uses a class where \table­of­con­tents may only be used once, the com­mand \table­of­tagged­con­tents{req1,req2,...}{ex­cl1,ex­cl2,...} may be used to pro­vide sev­eral ta­bles.
