[R-SIG-Mac] Need indexing program for OS-X.4.7

I'm finishing up a long manuscript and I need a good free or cheap  
indexing program for my Pismo.   The ideal program will allow me to  
just name the files with the manuscript, and the program will take  
them and then make a long alphabetical list of words and names, like  
you find in the back of books, with what page numbers they are on.   
It would be wonderful if the program would handle text and pdf but  
text is the main thing.

I would like to be able to be able to tell the program ahead of time  
what words NOT to list, like all of the words in this sentence would  
not be included.  I would need to be able to exclude numbers in the  
word list but include them in a different list, like dates and amounts.

I have downloaded Wikinotes, Annotape, and MTlibrarian.  Each looks  
like work to learn to use and I thought that I would avoid the  
initial comparison of them by asking the list.

I'm running OS-X.4.7 with no problems and have OS-9 available for  
classic programs.
