newbie question

Hello,

I recently installed xindy-2.2-rc2-linux.tar.gz
As far as I understand, I did it correctly.

As I used makeindex and makeglossaries before, I modified my .tex as follow:

-----------------------------
%\usepackage{makeidx} % with makeindex
\usepackage{index} % with xindy

%\usepackage[toc,acronym]{glossaries} % for MakeIndex
\usepackage[xindy,toc,acronym]{glossaries} % for xindy
-----------------------------

Then, I built up a symlink:
-----------------------------
sudo ln -s  /lib/libreadline.so.5.2 /lib/libreadline.so.4
<should I better choose 6.1 (the most recent one on my OS) instead of 
5.2? I tried, and noticed no difference.>
-----------------------------

After "makeglossaries" and compilations, I got my pdf with a glossary 
(and an acronym-glossary) ; so, it is OK.

But, I have no index ; and if I try to get one, launching texindy, here 
is the error I get:

-----------------------------
[...]

TeX Live contains xindy since 2008. Location of modules changed
between TeX Live 2009 and 2010. If you have installed newer version of
xindy than that already present in TeX Live, your installation can be
pretty mixed. You would probably have to run strace to see, what files
your texindy reads.

Problems with utf8 files

I am working on a book project typeset with LuaTeX (to be more
precise, lualatex). I need to change the sort order of the various
accented letters, and make them behave as if they were unaccented
(i.e., as in the Duden-order in German). My project  is in
English/american and the tex input files are all unicode, inclusing
the \index entries (no Latex workarounds like \"o etcetera). I  wrote
a small xindy style file with my sort rules, such as:

(sort-rule "ö" "o")
(sort-rule "ü" "u")

etc.,

plus the standard modules (the whole file is appended below).

But here is my problem:

1. If I call xindy with the english language module:

xindy -L english -M mymodule.xdy myfile.idx

then the sort rules are ignored. They are obeyed only if I change  the
\index commands to contain Latex-like accents instead of unicode
accented letters. However, this is not practical, since I have
hundreds of entries contained across several files. It seems as if
xindy is not recognizing the input file as utf8.

2. If, on the contrary, I call xindy without a language module, as in

xindy mymodule.xdy myfile.idx

Have you tried xindy -L general myfile.idx ? I think it's exactly what you need.

Do you have TeX-Live available or can you use it; TL 2009 or 2010?

If you want a binary xindy installation, TL 2010 contains the current
one. TL 2009 is good enough to work with it in most circumstances.

> %\usepackage{makeidx} % with makeindex
> \usepackage{index} % with xindy

NB: Please note that this change is irrelevant. index.sty is a mean
for more control over indexes than makeidx; both are independent of
MakeIndex or xindy.

I wanted to apply that, but then I saw that this shell script doesn't
work anyhow. It's also nowhere documented and was never supported by
me. It belongs to the xindy.v2 script group, and since we dropped
xindy.v2 in 2.4, we should drop it as well.

(Its functionality is delivered by texindy, nowadays.)

So I'm going to drop that script (and make-rules/styles,
incidentially).

Best,
	Joachim
