I am working on one application where i need to store page numbers in an array and retrive them later to print index. I don't want to use the existing index function as i need to have control on it. How can i implement it?

  • I'm not sure if this helps but have a look here ctan.org/pkg/etoc and here to get an idea of what can be makes tex.stackexchange.com/questions/94766/…

    you can directly use \write to work with external file of your own format, or define new commands that will use \label and \pageref.

  • What's in the standard indexing facility that doesn't suit you?

  • Without a response to for example egreg's question, we can't really help so much here. Almost certainly the best approach will depend on your real requirements.
