Questions tagged [makeindex]

MakeIndex is a program for sorting the entries identified in a source file by `\index{...}` into the order to be listed in an index. The LaTeX process writes out an `.idx` file, which is the input to MakeIndex. The output of MakeIndex is a sorted `.ind` file, to be read in by LaTeX in the next cycle to typeset the index.
