Summary Allow xindex as external tools for generating the associated glossary files

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


xindex ( ) is a Lua unicode aware program for creating an index file. It would be nice to allow this tool for generating the associated glossary files, just as makeindex and xindy.


No mwe.tex


This is something I’ve already looked into but I haven’t been able to work out how to convert the custom makeindex style file into an equivalent xindex cfg file.
