RefTeX

https://www.gnu.org/software/reftex/
Emacs minor mode for doing labels, references and citations in LaTeX

RefTeX is an Emacs minor mode with distinct support for \ref, \label, \cite,and \index commands in (multi-file) LaTeX documents.

  • A table of contents provides easy access to any part of a document.
  • Labels are created semi-automatically.
  • Definition context of labels is provided when creating a reference.
  • Citations are simplified with efficient database lookup.
  • Text phrases can be collected in a file, for later global indexing.
  • The index preview buffer helps to check and edit index entries.

RefTeX is bundled and pre-installed with GNU Emacs. It was written by Carsten Dominik with contributions from Stephen Eglen. It is currently maintained by the AUCTeX project.
