Gloss package for LaTeX

(Written in conjunction with José Luis Diaz, who introduced the idea of using BibTeX to create glossaries, and in fact the main author of the package.)

Gloss is a package which allows the creation of glossaries using BibTEX. With this approach, the user writes a database of terms and definitions using a file format much like the bibliographic databases. Then he inserts in the document a command for selecting which entries he wants to appear in the glossary. Running BibTEX these entries are extracted from the database and collected in alphabetical order in a file, which is read and inserted in the appropiate point of the document, typesetting the desired glossary or glossaries.
