You can call it directly, but you need to know all the necessary switches and file extensions. You can switch to xindy by adding xindy to the list of package options: Again, removing the nonumberlist option makes the location list appear: For example, the file greek-symbols.
Adjusting the earlier example with Greek symbols: Adjusted example third page modified to show effect: Both makeglossaries and makeglossaries-lite call an indexing application. The build process is now pdflatex mydoc bib2gls mydoc pdflatex mydoc This produces: The default behaviour is to use makeindex.
If I just modify the document so that it includes the xindy package option: For a large list, this method can take a long time when sorting alphabetically. For example, instead of: The Perl and Lua scripts provided with the glossaries package find the necessary information in the.
This needs to be added: Instead of nonumberlist I can instruct bib2gls to not save the location list which is more efficient.
Alternatively you can instruct bib2gls to sort by the description instead: Instead of using makeindex or xindy via makeglossaries or makeglossaries-liteit requires bib2glswhich performs two functions: Cannot locate xindy module for language nil in codepage nil.
The symbols are now defined in a. Cannot locate xindy module for language english in codepage nil. This example fails completely with xindy. Method 3 no external tools required, order by use in the document To order the symbol list according to the first time the symbol is used in the document, you need to make the following changes: Attempting to determine which entries have problem sort keys.
As you might be able to gather from the first point, you can also use this method as a substitute for the other two methods. If you use the makeglossaries-lite script, it fails with a cryptic message.
Method 4 external tool and. Sort key required for entries only containing command names. However, when sorting alphabetically, Method 2 is far more efficient and can support various locales when used with the xindy optionalthough this may not be applicable for symbols especially when they just contain ASCII characters.
Things go badly wrong if you use this method with the default alphabetical sorting when the sort value contains commands.Both the glossaries package and the glossaries-extra extension package provide the package option symbols, which creates a new list labelled symbols with the default title given by the language-sensitive \glssymbolsgroupname ("Symbols").
This list can be referenced with type=symbols. This guide will show you the steps needed to write your thesis using LaTeX. It covers how to generate the preliminary material like the approval page and table of contents, and how to generate your bibliography and references.

Some Tips and Tricks for Using LaTeX in Math Theses by Rob Benedetto How to Use the les mint-body.com, mint-body.com, and mint-body.com WARNING!!!!
This document (mint-body.com) is NOTa good model to build a math thesis from. The margins are wrong, the spacing is wrong, and the style of writing As you may have noticed, for certain symbols. In the shell, I have to issue the following commands when I update the list of symbols: latex mint-body.com makeindex mint-body.com -s mint-body.com -o mint-body.com latex mint-body.com where you can substitute pdflatex for latex in the above commands.
