The following command line options are accepted:
xindy [-h] [-t] [-v] [-l logfile] [-o outfile] [-L n] [-f filterprog] indexstyle raw-index
indexstyle names a
file, containing the index style description. The argument
raw-index names a file, containing the
raw index. Both arguments are mandatory.
Gives a short summary of all command line options.
Writes helpful information into the specified
logfile. For example, the keyword mappings are
written into this file, so one can check if the intended mappings
were actually performed this way.
Explicitly defines the name of the
output file. If not given, the name of the
raw-index is used with its extension
.ind (or added, if it had
no extension at all).
Enters tracing mode of the symbolic markup tags. The format of
the emitted tags can be defined with the command
Set the xindy logging-level to
raw-index before reading. The program must act as
a filter reading from
stdout. The most obvious
use of this option in conjunction with TeX is to run
-f tex2xindy on the index file prior to reading
the entries into xindy.
Shows the version number of xindy.
Errors and warnings are reported to
stdout and additionally to the logfile if
-l was specified.
The system uses the concept of a search path for finding the
index style files and modules. The searchpath can be set with the
which must contain a list of colon-separated directories. If it
ends with a colon, the built-in searchpath is added to the entire
searchpath. See the command searchpath for further details.
