# Directory obsolete/indexing/corridx

See the details in \doc\corridx.pdf

This makes corrections in a *.idx
file created by Latex as a raw index

in Latex we have these commands for making the index:

\begin{verbatim}
% acronyms 2 Entries
\newcommand{\ia}[2]{#1 (#2)\index{acr #2@#2!#1}}
% chemical 1 Entry
\newcommand{\ic}[1]{#1\index{chem #1@#1}}
% general 1 Entry
\newcommand{\ig}[1]{#1\index{gen #1@#1}}
Example: \ia{Polyalkylene oxide}{PAO}

\end{verbatim}

If you click on the program corridx.exe,

it uses in.txt as input
and
out.txt as output

if you have a single command line item, the program will use this as input file name

To start the program

with a command line parameter:

in winedt use as command line

c:\mypathto\corridx.exe "%P\%N.idx"
%P     Input File's Path
%N     Input File's Name

Better put in your Windet directory and use:
(to be clarified work out how it works really)

% Exe('%B\Exec\MiKTeX\corridx.exe');
%
% Exe('%B\Exec\MiKTeX\TeX.edt');

## corridx-obsolete – Add index entries to LaTeX document

Corridx is a preprocessor which stands between your run and makeindex. It corrects index entries, in cases where the natural way to express an index item is bad for index sorting. So, for example, it can simply transform an entry \index{1,2-ethanediol} to \index{ethanediol@1,2-ethanediol}, which will be sorted as you might hope, rather than in amongst the numbers.

The program is distributed as Pascal source, though a win32 executable is also available; the documentation shows how to integrate it with winedt.

The program has now been superseded by a package which does the job on the fly.
