Xindy is an alternative command to generate indexes.  It supports a lisp
syntax-like language for specifying how to format entries, e.g., whether
to use number ranges, and how to sort entries etc. Xindy is a program
for handling indexing for multiple formats, including TeX/LaTeX for
which purpose there's texindy.

I just added an entry to TeX-command-list, as the program uses the same
output from LaTeX, but you can specify some extra switches, e.g., one
for handling German, and which style file to use (if not using the default).

It's merely a suggestion, but shouldn't there be a tool button for the
index command?

ChangeLog entry:

        * tex.el (TeX-command-list): Added support for xindy.
