Good Afternoon

How can I run this code ?

latex <filename>.tex 
makeindex <filename>.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o <filename>.nls 
latex <filename>.tex


  • This should not run at all since no true LaTeX filename is given. – user31729 Feb 26 '14 at 18:14
  • Can you explain that better, please ? – user46548 Feb 27 '14 at 11:54
  • You need to specify which OS and editor you use. – Torbjørn T. Mar 1 '14 at 9:10
  • Angle brackets indicate a meta-syntactic variable. This means you need to substitute <filename> with the name of your file. For example, if your file is called myDoc.tex, then replace <filename> with myDoc. Each line represents a command that can be typed in a terminal but many people just click a button on their editor to run the command for them. If you tell us what editor you're using (e.g. TeXworks) we'll be able to tell you what button to click. – Nicola Talbot Mar 1 '14 at 14:29
  • my editor is winedit. Do you know ? – user46548 Mar 11 '14 at 15:04

I've made a plugin for WinEdt called Nomenclature which takes care of compiling nomenclatures created with the packages nomencl or nomentbl.

It automatically recognises the right command to issue by looking at which package has been loaded in the preamble of your document.

To install the plugin, open the file Install.edt in WinEdt and press Shift+Ctrl+F9.

After that, a command "Make Nomenclature" is available in the "TeX" menu in WinEdt:

Note that the commands "TeXify" and "PDFTeXify" get modified by the plugin so that using one of them, you get the full compilation process (including the nomenclature).

  • @egreg Hi, nice that you've noticed me! Hope you are fine. I'm here just to update some answers of mine regarding WinEdt (updated add-ons and links). Looking forward for your 500k! – karlkoeller Apr 10 '16 at 11:21
