Is there a simple way (i.e not inspecting the output of a processing run) to get a list of un-fulfilled references?

As in, if i reference something

\ref{SomethingReallyCoolIHaventThoughtOfYet}

And I continue writing, is there a clean way of getting a list;

LineNo:SomethingReallyCoolIHaventThoughtOfYet
LineNo:SomethingElseIAlreadyForgotAbout

If those references don't point to anything?

The simplest way would be the following in a terminal window:

(Mac or Linux)

$ grep Reference mytexfile.log

(Windows)

$ findstr Reference mytexfile.log

and this will produce the relevant list.
