I'm working on a medium size document, with lots of citations and cross references (Latex inserts ?? where it can not find the citation or crossed reference). What is the way to find the unidentified references through latex and its generated files?
Most LaTeX editors will provide you with a point-and-click feature to find such missing references, but the output of
pdflatex will already tell you: You will see things like:
LaTeX Warning: Citation `key' on page 1 undefined on input line 42.
LaTeX Warning: Reference `label' on page 1 undefined on input line 42.
Those same warnings can be found in the
log file of your document. E.g., by doing
grep "LaTeX Warning" mydoc.log
you will find
LaTeX Warning: Citation `key' on page 1 undefined on input line 42. LaTeX Warning: Reference `lab' on page 1 undefined on input line 42. LaTeX Warning: There were undefined references.
