Summary description: Using a unlimited number of indices with almost every LaTeX-class
License type: Free

Announcement text:
SplitIndex consists of a LaTeX package, splitidx, and a  
small program, splitindex. The package may be used to  
produce one index or several indices. Without using the  
program the number of indices is limited by the number of  
TeXs output streams. But using the program you may use even  
more than 16 indices. At this case, splitidx outputs only a  
single file \jobname.idx and the program splits that file  
into several raw index files and calls your favorite index  
processor for each of it.  
The splitindex program is available as perl-program  
(splitindex.pl), java-program (splitindex.java/class),  
Windows-CYGWIN binary (splitindex.exe), Linux-i386-ELF  
binary (splitindex-Linux-i386), OpenBSD-3.0-i386 binary  
(splitindex-OpenBSD-i386) and even as TeX program  
(splitindex.tex with some limitations). The source  
splitindex.c is also part of the distribution.  
There's an installation documentation (install.txt) and an 
installation script (install.sh) at the package. 
The package was testet with the standard LaTeX classes and 
the KOMA-Script classes. 
This version is intended to be stable though the version 
number is less than 1.
