# Un-fulfilled reference listing

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.

No fun, but it works. Thanks –  Andrew Bolster Apr 25 '11 at 1:41
