# Omit list of acronyms

I have a text which includes some acronyms \ac{ABC}, but I want to omit the list of acronyms from my final document. As this post suggests, I tried:

\usepackage[nolist]{acronym}


but the title "List of Acronyms" still shows up on its own page. How can I completely omit it?

The alternative would be to comment out the package and find a way to deal with the \ac{} tags without removing them.

You could use \def\ac#1{\ignorespaces}. However, the nolist option should work. Perhaps you need to remove your aux files or run pdflatex or latex a few more times. I don't know the mechanism acronym uses well enough to say for sure whether or not this will have any impact. –  Roelof Spijker Dec 12 '11 at 16:38
Tried removing aux files and re-running pdfLaTeX, problem persists. \def\ac#1{\ignorespaces} removes the acronyms, but I need to keep them, just not have pdflatex choke on the \ac{} bits without the package defined. –  Benjamin Dec 12 '11 at 16:42
My problem is coming from my acronyms file acronyms.tex, which I \include in my main document, and which begins with an unnumbered section, the section name is being printed but not the list because of the nolist option... –  Benjamin Dec 12 '11 at 17:07
ok... I suppose you could use \includeonly then. –  Roelof Spijker Dec 12 '11 at 17:23
I think \includeonly works only in the preamble, but I need to insert after document start. –  Benjamin Dec 12 '11 at 17:35

\newacro{⟨acronym⟩}[⟨short name⟩]{⟨full name⟩}
\acrodef{⟨acronym⟩}[⟨short name⟩]{⟨full name⟩}
the difference between the two consisting in the fact that the latter makes the acronym deﬁnition stored in the .aux ﬁle. Therefore, the acronym becomes available from start-up in the next run.
