### nomenclature not appearing in PDF  Topic is solved

Hi everyone !

I can't get an output for my nomenclature. COuld you help me ?

I'm using \documentclass{report}

My script for the nomenclature part is :

\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amsthm,amssymb} \usepackage{nomencl} \begin{document}  \makenomenclature \renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Symbols} \mbox{} \nomenclature{$c$}{Speed of light in a vacuum inertial frame}\nomenclature{$h$}{Planck constant}\printnomenclature \end{document}

You need to run an extra tool, just like when you are creating a bibliography. The exact command is written out on the bottom of page two of the nomencl manual.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I will try. Thankyou again !

Do I write makeindex <filename> hfilenamei.nlo -s nomencl.ist -ohfilenamei <filename>.nls on a terminal ?
I've never used the bibliography commands so I don't really understand...

Yes, you need to run this on the command line/terminal. Suppose your file is named test.tex then you need to run

makeindex test.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o test.nls

every time you change the the nomenclature. I'd run this a last time when the document is finished (and then compile the file once or twice again).
