I'm writing a long document with a lot of math in it. While I write, I would like to be able to keep track of whether I've used a certain symbol before or not. I tried making a table, but I gave up at 2 pages. Is there a better way to do this in latex?

Edit: I'll try the nomencl and glossary packages like you guys suggest. The example output in the documentation looks nice. Thanks for the replies.

    Indexing the symbols with the nomencl package you could print the list of used symbols with references to pages and/or equations where they appear.
