glos­saries – Create glos­saries and lists of acronyms

The glos­saries pack­age sup­ports acronyms and mul­ti­ple glos­saries, and has pro­vi­sion for op­er­a­tion in sev­eral lan­guages (us­ing the fa­cil­i­ties of ei­ther ba­bel or poly­glos­sia). New en­tries are de­fined to have a name and de­scrip­tion (and op­tion­ally an as­so­ci­ated sym­bol). Sup­port for mul­ti­ple lan­guages is of­fered, and plu­ral forms of terms may be spec­i­fied. An ad­di­tional pack­age, glos­saries-acc­supp, can make use of the acc­supp pack­age mech­a­nisms for ac­ces­si­bil­ity sup­port for PDF files con­tain­ing glos­saries.

The user may de­fine new glos­sary styles, and pream­bles and postam­bles can be spec­i­fied. There is pro­vi­sion for load­ing a database of terms, but only terms used in the text will be added to the rel­e­vant glos­sary.

The pack­age uses an in­dex­ing pro­gram to pro­vide the ac­tual glos­sary; ei­ther makein­dex or xindy may serve this pur­pose, and a Perl script is pro­vided to serve as in­ter­face.

This pack­age re­quires the mfirstuc pack­age.

The pack­age su­per­sedes the au­thor’s glos­sary pack­age (which is now ob­so­lete).
