### RefTeX

https://www.gnu.org/software/reftex/
labels, references, citations, indices in LaTeX

RefTeX is a specialized package for support of labels, references, citations, and the indices in LaTeX. RefTeX wraps itself round four LaTeX macros: \label, \ref, \cite, and \index. Using these macros usually requires looking up different parts of the document and searching through BibTeX database files. RefTeX automates these time-consuming tasks almost entirely. It also provides functions to display the structure of a document and to move around in this structure quickly. RefTeX is bundled with Emacs and available as a package for XEmacs. If you are using an earlier version of Emacs or if you are craving for the latest features and bugs, get the standalone distribution.
