glossaries package FAQ
When makeglossaries tries to run makeindex or xindy, it's preferred method of running the process is to use piped redirection (using 2>&1 | ). This enables makeglossaries to read both the standard output and standard error streams. There are two reasons for doing this:
- makeglossaries can pick up messages that don't get written to the transcript file;
- the -q option works correctly.
If all goes well and you're not bothered about the -q setting, then you don't need to worry about it. As from makeglossaries version 2.14 (distributed with glossaries version 4.04), you can suppress this warning using the -Q switch. Alternatively you can use the new -k switch to prevent makeglossaries from attempting the piped redirection and it will just use the platform-independent method.
