comment How to mark up different entry types (index/glossary/acronym/notation) at the same time in datagidx package?
At least in Debian Linux the newest glossaries.zip from CTAN sets the rights of many files to u=rw,go= (in global install), so only root can access them. Well, this is easy to fix with chmod u=rwx,go=rx * in glossaries install directory and then texhash, so then according to pdfTeX log my glossaries version is v4.11. But then I get an error: (./g.glsdefs ! Undefined control sequence. \@glo@firstplural ->\glo@SD@longpl (\protect \MakeTextUppercase {\glo@SD@sho... l.120 } % ?. I think this a bug or incompatibility in newest glossaries . Any ideas how to fix this?

Your answer looks very interesting to me, but I get error on line \glsnogroupskiptrue (incorporated to my own code): ! Undefined control sequence. l.75 \glsnogroupskiptrue. Is it about package versions? According to pdfTeX (TeX Live/Debian) log, my etoolbox is v.2.1, textcase is v0.07, hyperref is 6.83m, glossaries is v3.02, glossary-mcols is v1.0. All but glossaries and glossary-mcols are newest versions from CTAN, glossaries and glossary-mcols are from Debian Wheezy repos (due to errors caused by newest glossaries). What I should I install and/or check to fix this?

comment How to create a comma-separated list in LaTeX according to the number of elements in another list?
@egreg Thank you, it works. I use the comma-separated list generation solution because for me it's easier to incorporate it in my code, which is a little modified version of David Carlisle's answer to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/52472/… .

comment How to add \hline to macro expansion?
@David Carlisle: Yes, but then as I have to create several different tabular arrays using slightly modified versions of this code, I thought that it would be easier to use, modify and maintain if all the code to create a tabular array of this kind was created by using only \tablestart \listheadings \listbody.

comment generating LaTeX tabular code during compilation
@Marco LuaTeX might be an interesting option. But is there a way for a generic transformation (a regular expression or something) to convert any LaTeX file into a valid LuaTeX file? What I find most difficult in LaTeX, in addition to the lack of common programming constructs, is getting the packages work together (I currently have 19).

Thank you a lot, this is an excellent answer and helps me enormously. I have been searching and looking for a solution for months every now and then.
