Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/splitindex
Summary description: Using a unlimited number of indices with almost every LaTeX-class
License type: lppl

SplitIndex consists of a LaTeX package, splitidx, and a
small program, splitindex (available in perl, TeX, Java, C,
binaries for Windows-Cygwin, OpenBSD-i386, Linux-i386). 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.

Changes at version 0.9:
- New option `useindex' makes \index and alias for \sindex.
- New command `\newprotectedindex' behaves like `\newindex'
but tries to protect the argument of `\index' and `\sindex'
using `\@onelevel at sanitize'.
- New option `protected' makes all `\index' and `\sindex'
calls use `\@onelevel at sanitize' to protect the argument.

Thanks for the upload.
