I would like to run XeLaTeX with Xindy. Therefore I copied the example in question How to use xindy with XeTeX/LuaTeX?. I used the code from where this is written (Herbert’s answer), but I used XeLaTeX instead:
xelatex <file> xindy -C utf8 -I latex -M myModuleE <file>.idx xelatex <file>
Using these command codes I get:
Unsupported input markup latex.
When I remove
-I latex I get the following error message. Unfortunately I do not get Xindy running anD I get an error message:
*** - PROGN: variable MYMODULEE.XDY has no value
The module "MYMODULEE.XDY" is created and is in the directory of the TeX project.
When I tried different other approaches (including different codes) always this error message appears, even though the relevant
*.xdy is present and not empty.
Has anyone an idea what goes wrong?
I use a Windows 7 computer with the newest version of TeXworks, and a MacBook with Mac OS X 10.9.1 and TeXworks for mac.
I never before used Xindy, so think it is still a configuration problem. So far I used LaTeX and MakeIndex, but u have many international characters, that is the reason why I would like to switch.
