I try compilling Xindy document at LaTeX and my MWE like this :

     \documentclass{article}

    \usepackage[xindy]{glossaries}
    \makeglossaries

    \newglossaryentry{gloss}{
    name=glossaries,
    description=A package for generating glossaries in many styles
    }

    \begin{document}

    \texttt{\gls{gloss}} is a great package!

    \printglossaries

\end{document}

I follow instruction installing Xindy from this and I try to compile it with

xindy -L english -I xindy -M "testfile" -t "testfile.glg" -o "testfile.gls" "testfile.glo"

And I get error like this :

ioy What is ScriptPath from this script path ?

@echo off
set ScriptPath=<localtexmf>\scripts\xindy
perl %ScriptPath%\texindy.pl %*

I feel error from script above it .

  • What exactly is this installation? Is xindy installed by hand? – daleif Jan 6 '15 at 8:02
  • The xindy.pl has changed and some of the steps mentioned in the question you linked too are imho no longer up-to-date. See this feature request for more informations (and read the comments!) sourceforge.net/p/miktex/feature-requests/319 – Ulrike Fischer Jan 6 '15 at 9:30
  • @UlrikeFischer, thank for your comment , but what is the implementation xindy ? – Hirwanto Jan 7 '15 at 2:29
  • @UlrikeFischer , How to make a wrapper xindy.exe and texindy.exe? What do you mean ScriptPath from tex.stackexchange.com/questions/71167/… ? – Hirwanto Jan 7 '15 at 2:51
  • @Hirwanto: Rereading the answer of speravir more carefully I see that he has updated it in 2014 so probably it will work with a newer xindy.pl. But I don't have the time to test. Try if it works if Scriptpath points to the absolute path of the local tree where you put the xindy files. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 7 '15 at 9:22
