UpdateIndex (UpdateIndex.bsh vV1.0 by Peter Theobald)
Submitted by turtlecove on Wednesday, 17 November, 2010 - 02:30
Macro for keeping an "index" or "table of contents" at the top or bottom of an outline file. It assumes all non-indented lined are headers with indented content following each header. Also assumes there is a header titled "Index".

UpdateIndex scans the current buffer, makes a list of all the headers, and replaces the section titled "Index" with this list.

For example:

Index
    old items
    no longer present

shopping list
    peaches
    apples

calls to make
    call Larry
    call Moe
    call Curly

After running UpdateIndex macro the file will be:

Index
    shopping list
    calls to make

shopping list
    peaches
    apples

calls to make
    call Larry
    call Moe
    call Curly
It works really well in conjunction with my WikiWord.bsh macro which can turn each header into an active link.
