2. Operation of docbookindex

To generate an ID index, use a command of this general form, where file.xml is the name of your DocBook source file.

docbookindex file.xml

This will generate an XSL-FO file named “” (for Table Of Contents). This file must be converted in turn to “toc.pdf”.

At the TCC, we have an academic license for the XEP converter. See the instructions for running this program in Writing documentation with DocBook-XML 4.3. Elsewhere, see the public-domain converter Apache FOP.
