# [OS X TeX] How make glossary with memoir class built-in facility and package imakeeidx

What changes to the “pdflatexmk.engine" or the “latexmkrcedit" file might be needed, if any, in order to run “makeindex" from within a “memoir" document class .tex source so as to create a glossary (along with  an ordinary index)? Or is there an issue with the used “imakeidx” package itself or the way I’m using it?

Note that I’m using the built-in glossary facilities of the memoir class, and *not* the external package “glossaries”.

Below is the source, which when the pdflatexmk engine is run from within TeXShop, creates an *empty* file glossary.idx — hence no glossary appears in the resulting .pdf.

\documentclass{memoir}

\usepackage{amsmath}

\usepackage[makeindex]{imakeidx}
\makeindex[options=-s indexheaders]
\makeglossary[glossary]
\makeindex[name=glossary,title=Index of notation,options=-s glossarystyle.gst -o book.gls book.glo]

\begin{document}

The empty set is denoted by $\emptyset$.%
\index{empty set!notation}
\glossary[glossary]{$\emptyset$}{empty set}

The set of all subsets of a set $X$ is denoted by $\mathcal{P}(X)$.%
\index{power set}
\glossary[glossary]{$\mathcal{P}(X)$}{power set of set}

\newpage

For sets $X$ and $Y$, the notation $f \colon X \to Y$ means that $f$ is a functions from $X$ to $Y$.%
\index{function!notation}
\glossary[glossary]{$f \colon X \to Y$}{function from one set to another}.

\printindex
\printglossary[glossary]

\end{document}

This query is related to what I’ve posted a:t http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/321597/how-run-makeindex-inside-memoir-class-document-for-glossary <http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/321597/how-run-makeindex-inside-memoir-class-document-for-glossary> .
At least I’ve progressed to the point that running the pdflatexmk engine no longer produces an error — just no glossary at all!
