Title
Software tools for indexing : what we need
Source
Indexer. 17(1990), S.108-113
Year
1990
Abstract
PC-based software for document prosessing has become quite sophisticated, but the software tools available for embedding index entires in text files do not meet the needs of professional indexers. The author outlines basic index requirements of American publishers, and deficiencies in the current software and their user interfaces. The indexing capabilities of Microsoft WORD, WordPerfect, WordStar, XyWrite, and MACREX are reviewed. Suggestions are offerd for improvement in sorting algorithms, formatting capabilities, and user interface design
