GNU ptx
GNU version of the traditional permuted index generator.

GNU ptx is the GNU version of the traditional permuted index generator. It can handle multiple input files at once, produce TeX compatible output, and produce readable "KWIC" (KeyWords In Context) indexes without needing to use nroff. This version does not handle input files that do not fit in memory all at once.
