# How to refer to a definition at the end of the page?

I want to write some word in LaTeX and write its definition at the end of the page.

For example:

this is an example* in latex doc..

------------------------------------
*example: is ... end of the definition.


Any idea on how to achieve that?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You mean like this?

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
this is an example\footnote{example: is a WORKING, compileable Tex Document}
in latex doc..
\end{document}


PS.: There is tex.stackexchange.com for LaTeX specific questions!

What you want to achieve is called footnotes. Have a look at this documentation.
