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
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

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
