This is the README file relative to package imakeidx version 1.3c
dated 16 May 2016.

Copyright 2010-2016 by Enrico Gregorio

The bundle contains the files:

README              this file
imakeidx.dtx        the documented source TeX file
manifest.txt        legalese information.

WARNING: the derived files:

imakeidx.sty        the package itself
imakeidx.pdf        the documentation file in PDF format

are SIMULTANEOUSLY produced while running pdflatex on imakeidx.dtx.

The bundle  is distributed  under the LPPL license  version 1.3c or 
any later version.

The bundle has the status of author maintained.

The various files should be moved to the TDS folders as such:
in source/latex/imakeidx/  file: imakeidx.dtx
in doc/latex/imakeidx/     files: README, manifest.txt.imakidx.pdf 
in /tex/latex/imakeidx/    file: imakeidx.sty

The main  purpose of this bundle  is to exploit  the possibility of 
running  an  index  formatting   program  from  within  a  document 
typesetting task (tested with the engines pdftex, xetex, and luatex 
in their  incarnation  set up to process  the LaTeX  markup) at the 
\printindex  level, so that one  or more indices  can be typeset in 
such a way that they are always synchronous  with the document they 
belong to.

With the TeXlive 2010 release  the makeindex  program can be safely 
run within a TeX run;  with previous distributions the shell escape 
feature  had to be  explicitly  enabled.   With the 2010  and later 
distributions the makeindex program is directly accessible.  If the 
xindy program  is used  to sort index entries  and format the index 
files, it is still necessary to use the full shell escape option.

This  bundle  is compatible  with  most  existing  classes;    some 
conflicts  with other  packages  have been  reported  and have been 
resolved,  or  at  least  advice is given  so as  to overcome  such 

This version 1.3c fixes a problem whereby fancyhdr would not produce
the correct headers; as a consequence, xpatch is not loaded any more.

imakeidx – A pack­age for pro­duc­ing mul­ti­ple in­dexes

The pack­age en­ables the user to pro­duce and type­set one or more in­dexes si­mul­ta­ne­ously with a doc­u­ment. The pack­age is known to work in LaTeX doc­u­ments pro­cessed with pdfLaTeX, XLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. If makein­dex is used for pro­cess­ing the in­dex en­tries, no par­tic­u­lar set­ting up is needed when TeX Live is used. Us­ing xindy or other pro­grams it is nec­es­sary to en­able shell es­cape; shell es­cape is also needed if splitin­dex is used.
