I write papers, reports, etc., and frequently use the same set of acronyms, so I thought it would be useful to just keep all the acronym definitions in a single file. Seems like the sensible approach to me.
The problem is that sometimes I do want an acronym list, and sometimes I don't, and unfortunately, it seems that LaTeX doesn't provide an elegant way of doing this. If you define an acronym using
\acro then latex will put it in an acronym list, and if you define it with with
\acrodef then it won't.
It seems like this prevents me from keeping a single source file for all my acronyms and using it in both documents in which I would like an acronym list and documents in which I wouldn't.
Does anyone know of an elegant solution for this?
