I am writing a math textbook, and hope to have a separate solutions manual. I'd like for the manual to be able to refer to problems in the original book so that LaTeX, or I, can catch when the exercise numbers change since I am always revising them. Also I may wish to skip some in the solutions manual.
It occurs to me that another solution would be to have one big, happy document but "turn off" the table of contents generation after the main text and then restart the page numbering for the manual.
Perhaps someone has a better solution than either of these. Thanks in advance.
