Chapter 11. Index Generation > 11.1. Syntax of the index entries

11.1. Syntax of the index entries

This section describes the default syntax used to generate index entries with LaTeX and either MakeIndex or xindy. Different levels of complexity are introduced progressively, showing, for each case, the input file and the generated typeset output.

Figures 11.3 and 11.4 on page 656 show the input and generated output of a small LaTeX document, where various simple possibilities of the \index command are shown, together with the result of including the showidx package (see Section 11.4.2). To make the index entries consistent in these figures (see Section 11.1.7), the commands \Com and \Prog were defined and used. The index-generating environment theindex has been redefined to get the output on one page (Section 11.4.1 explains how this can be done).
