29. How can you create a symbols glossary?


Use the following code.

Note: This question and answer were contributed by Nicky van Foreest at the University of Twente. I have not used this code myself, and present it here without further comments or warranty.

Example usage

In the preamble:

% Glossary stuff

\newcommand{\glossaryname}{Symbols Index}

    {\chapter*{Symbols Index}





\include ...

... $\{W(t)\}\equiv \{W(t),t\geq 0\}\glossary{Wt@$W(t)$ & State or window
size of the source at time $t$}$ ...


\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Symbols Index}
\chaptermark{Symbols Index}
