indx ← notespace ##.index class             ⍝ ⍵-index of notes in space ⍺.

[index]  extracts  lines starting 'Index',[class] from character arrays in space
[notespace]  and  returns a vector of (entry refs) pairs:

    entry:  index entry (character vector)
    refs:   names of variables referencing entry (vector of character vectors).

Multiple entries on the same line are separated by character '|'.

The  notes  in this workspace use the convention ':' to add entries to a ≤topic≥
index,  ';'  to  add  entries  to a ≤person≥ index, and '≡' to add entries to an
alias list.

    Index:  topic_entry|topic_entry|...
    Index;  person_entry|...
    Index≡  alias, for example "network, see: graph", as follows:
