The Index Author consists of four large groups of functions. Three groups are for writing an index and the fourth group (tools) serves the administration and is for anything else. This help section follows this division, simply click on one of the categories to learn more about it.

The File Index

Under circumstances you have several files for which an index shall be made, for example HTML documents of an internet page. In this case, the File Index is the right choice. It is possible to create a HTML document as an index or you can also save your index as a normal text file. [more..]

The Keyword Index

The Keyword Index goes another way. Here it is all about to create a list of concepts which happen in a document. For example, if you would like to extract terms from HTML documents for a search engine, you can do that with this function. [more..]
