|Full description='''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 | Emacs]] and available as a package for [[XEmacs]]. If you are using an earlier version of [[emacs | Emacs]] or if you are craving for the latest features and bugs, get the standalone distribution.

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.
