# How can i get the abbreviations as list in Appendix page?

A possible list of terms, abbreviations and variable names with brief explanations has to be placed after the table of contents. If any term is explained in the list of terms, it is supposed to be used in the chapter text where it is used the first time. Is that possible in latex? If so which package can help me to do that. This MsWord screen shot is a good example.. thanks in advance..

You uses the tag glossaries. There is a package with the same name which I recommend. Many examples can be found on tex stackexchange. – Marco Daniel Jan 31 '12 at 18:48

The glossaries package allows glossaries as well as lists of acronyms. Here's a full example (note: compile it with pdflatex <myfile> makeglossaries <myfile> pdflatex <myfile>):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[acronym]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{electrolyte}{name=electrolyte,%
description={solution able to conduct electric current}}

\newacronym{svm}{SVM}{support vector machine}

\textheight=180pt% just for the example

I don't know aynthing about TeXlipse. I'm using latexmk to run makeglossaries-- see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1226/…. If that isn't helpful, please ask a new question. – lockstep Jan 31 '12 at 19:47
