LaTeX Package : glossary v 2.4 Last Modified : 20th July 2006 Author : Nicola Talbot Files : glossary.dtx - documented source file glossary.ins - installation script This package is provided to assist generating a glossary. It has a certain amount of flexibility allowing the user to customize the format of the glossary and define new glossary-style objects. It is also possible to define acronyms. To extract the code do: latex glossary.ins This will create the files glossary.sty, glossary.perl, makeglos.pl and some sample files. Move glossary.sty to a subdirectory of your local texmf tree (e.g. $LOCALTEXMF/tex/latex/contrib/) and glossary.perl to the LaTeX2HTML style files directory (e.g. latex2html/styles). The Perl script makeglos.pl provides an easy interface to makeindex for those who can't remember (or can't be bothered) all the required switches. See documentation for more details. To extract the documentation do: latex glossary.dtx makeindex -s gind.ist glossary makeindex -s gglo.ist -o glossary.gls glossary.glo latex glossary.dtx latex glossary.dtx Alternatively, if you use pdflatex instead of latex, the documentation will have hyperlinks.

glossary – Create a glossary
The package supports generation of a glossary with makeindex. It has a certain amount of flexibility allowing the user to customize the format of the glossary and define new glossary-style objects so that you can have more than one type of glossary in your document.
The package is no longer supported; the author urges users to switch to use of its replacement, the glossaries package. Migration support is available, within the newer package.
