Commands
********

Here is a summary of RefTeX's commands which can be executed from
LaTeX files.  Command which are executed from the special buffers are
not described here.  All commands are available from the Ref' menu.
See Note: Key Bindings.

- Command: reftex-toc
with one ore two C-u' prefixes, rescan the document first.

- Command: reftex-label
Insert a unique label.  With one or two C-u' prefixes, enforce
document rescan first.

- Command: reftex-reference
Start a selection process to select a label, and insert a
reference to it.  With one or two C-u' prefixes, enforce document
rescan first.

- Command: reftex-citation
Make a citation using BibTeX database files.  After prompting for
a regular expression, scans the buffers with BibTeX entries (taken
from the \bibliography' command or a thebibliography'
environment) and offers the matching entries for selection.  The
selected entry is formated according to reftex-cite-format' and
inserted into the buffer.
When called with one or two C-u' prefixes, first rescans the
document.  When called with a numeric prefix, make that many
citations.  When called with point inside the braces of a \cite'
command, it will add another key, ignoring the value of
reftex-cite-format'.
The regular expression uses an expanded syntax: &&' is interpreted
as and'.  Thus, aaaa&&bbb' matches entries which contain both
aaaa' and bbb'.  While entering the regexp, completion on knows
citation keys is possible.  =' is a good regular expression to
match all entries in all files.

- Command: reftex-index
Query for an index macro and insert it along with its arguments.
The index macros available are those defined in
reftex-index-macro' or by a call to reftex-add-index-macros',
typically from an AUCTeX style file.  RefTeX provides completion
for the index tag and the index key, and will prompt for other
arguments.

- Command: reftex-index-selection-or-word
Put current selection or the word near point into the default index
macro.  This uses the information in reftex-index-default-macro'
to make an index entry.  The phrase indexed is the current
selection or the word near point.  When called with one C-u'
prefix, let the user have a chance to edit the index entry.  When
called with 2 C-u' as prefix, also ask for the index macro and
other stuff.  When called inside TeX math mode as determined by
the texmathp.el' library which is part of AUCTeX, the string is
first processed with the reftex-index-math-format', which see.

- Command: reftex-index-phrase-selection-or-word
Add current selection or the word at point to the phrases buffer.
When you are in transient-mark-mode and the region is active, the
selection will be used - otherwise the word at point.  You get a
chance to edit the entry in the phrases buffer - to save the
buffer and return to the LaTeX document, finish with C-c C-c'.

- Command: reftex-index-visit-phrases-buffer
Switch to the phrases buffer, initialize if empty.

- Command: reftex-index-phrases-apply-to-region
Index all index phrases in the current region.  This works exactly
like global indexing from the index phrases buffer, but operation
is restricted to the current region.

- Command: reftex-display-index
Display a buffer with an index compiled from the current document.
When the document has multiple indices, first prompts for the
correct one.  When index support is turned off, offer to turn it
on.  With one or two C-u' prefixes, rescan document first.  With
prefix 2, restrict index to current document section.  With prefix
3, restrict index to active region.

- Command: reftex-view-crossref
View cross reference of macro at point.  Point must be on the KEY
argument.  Works with the macros \label', \ref', \cite',
\bibitem', \index' and many derivatives of these.  Where it
the variable reftex-view-crossref-extra' and the command
reftex-view-crossref-from-bibtex'.  With one or two C-u'
prefixes, enforce rescanning of the document.  With argument 2,
select the window showing the cross reference.

- Command: reftex-view-crossref-from-bibtex
View location in a LaTeX document which cites the BibTeX entry at
point.  Since BibTeX files can be used by many LaTeX documents,
this function prompts upon first use for a buffer in RefTeX mode.
To reset this link to a document, call the function with with a
prefix arg.  Calling this function several times find successive
citation locations.

- Command: reftex-create-tags-file
Create TAGS file by running etags' on the current document.  The
TAGS file is also immediately visited with visit-tags-table'.

- Command: reftex-grep-document
Run grep query through all files related to this document.  With
prefix arg, force to rescan document.  No active TAGS table is
required.

- Command: reftex-search-document
Regexp search through all files of the current document.  Starts
always in the master file.  Stops when a match is found.  No
active TAGS table is required.

- Command: reftex-query-replace-document
Run a query-replace-regexp of FROM with TO over the entire
document.  With prefix arg, replace only word-delimited matches.
No active TAGS table is required.

- Command: reftex-change-label
Query replace FROM with TO in all \label' and \ref' commands.
Works on the entire multifile document.  No active TAGS table is
required.

- Command: reftex-renumber-simple-labels
Renumber all simple labels in the document to make them
sequentially.  Simple labels are the ones created by RefTeX,
consisting only of the prefix and a number.  After the command
completes, all these labels will have sequential numbers
throughout the document.  Any references to the labels will be
changed as well.  For this, RefTeX looks at the arguments of any
macros which either start or end with the string ref'.  This
command should be used with care, in particular in multifile
documents.  You should not use it if another document refers to
this one with the xr' package.

- Command: reftex-find-duplicate-labels
Produce a list of all duplicate labels in the document.

- Command: reftex-customize
Run the customize browser on the RefTeX group.

- Command: reftex-show-commentary
Show the commentary section from reftex.el'.

- Command: reftex-info
Run info on the top RefTeX node.

- Command: reftex-parse-document
Parse the entire document in order to update the parsing
information.

- Command: reftex-reset-mode
Enforce rebuilding of several internal lists and variables.  Also
removes the parse file associated with the current document.
