I want to write a macro which works like this.

The context is a book. At the start of processing chapter 4, an empty
file 4.keywords should be created. When I say:


this should be typeset in boldface in the running text, but 


should be written into 4.keywords as well. File buffering should not
be done.

At the end of the chapter, I should be able to say


which should induce the code:



By not having buffering, it would become a one-pass algorithm, because
at the end of the chapter, the file 4.keywords would be ready to use.

How would I go about writing this macro?
