Well, I really don't like to get on your nerves but I'm not so
familiar with programming (just a user :...)
Does the first solution mean I have to change the line

LString tmp = "makeindex -c -q "; ---> line 452, LaTeX.C


LString tmp = "makeindex -c -q -s [name of my style file in

and everythink works fine?

(I'm a little bit nervous when changing source codes :-)

Thank you very much,
