The Index Phrases File

   RefTeX maintains a file in which phrases can be collected for later
indexing.  The file is located in the same directory as the master file
of the document and has the extension `.rip' (Reftex Index Phrases).
You can create or visit the file with `C-c |'
(`reftex-index-visit-phrases-buffer').  If the file is empty it is
initialized by inserting a file header which contains the definition of
the available index macros.  This list is initialized from
`reftex-index-macros' (Note: Defining Index Macros).  You can edit
the header as needed, but if you define new LaTeX indexing macros,
don't forget to add them to `reftex-index-macros' as well.  Here is a
phrase file header example:

     % -*- mode: reftex-index-phrases -*-
     %                           Key   Macro Format       Repeat
     >>>INDEX_MACRO_DEFINITION:   i    \index{%s}          t
     >>>INDEX_MACRO_DEFINITION:   I    \index*{%s}         nil
     >>>INDEX_MACRO_DEFINITION:   g    \glossary{%s}       t
     >>>INDEX_MACRO_DEFINITION:   n    \index*[name]{%s}   nil

   The macro definition lines consist of a unique letter identifying a
macro, a format string and the REPEAT flag, all separated by <TAB>.
The format string shows how the macro is to be applied, the `%s' will
be replaced with the index entry.  The repeat flag indicates if WORD is
indexed by the macro as `\index{WORD}' (REPEAT = `nil') or as
`\index{WORD}WORD' (REPEAT = `t').  In the above example it is assumed
that the macro `\index*{WORD}' already typesets its argument in the
text, so that it is unnecessary to repeat WORD outside the macro.
