Options

-I scope
The implied scope, must be "all", "local", or "global". IndexTerms which do not specify a scope will have the implied scope. If unspecified, "all" is assumed.

-P file
Read a preamble from file. The contents of file will be inserted before the <index> tag.
-q
Run quietly.
-s name
Name the IndexDiv that contains symbols. The default is "Symbols". Meaningless if -g is not used.

Scope of the index, must be "all", "local", or "global". If unspecified, "all" is assumed.
