Can you please explain what you mean with "analytic index"? Some more information would be great. – Kurt Oct 14 '12 at 20:46
@Kurt : I think OP means a back-of-the-book index, as opposed to the TOC. In some Latin languages, both are "indexes". – Brent.Longborough Oct 14 '12 at 21:15
@Brent: So an "analytical index" is meant? I see. In German we call it "Index" or "Stichwortverzeichnis" or "Register". – Kurt Oct 14 '12 at 21:45
No package that I know does; however, version 0.6 of kantlipsum will feature index generation. – egreg Oct 14 '12 at 22:13
I removed "analytic" from the question. In Italian it's "Indice analitico", while in English it's just "Index" as there's no confusion with the table of contents, which is "Indice" in Italian. – egreg Oct 15 '12 at 13:20

Version 0.6 of kantlipsum, just uploaded to CTAN, has a new feature: the index option will add an index entry for each paragraph.







The index will be like in the following picture
