nil means, keep buffers created for parsing and lookup.
RefTeX sometimes needs to visit files related to the current
document. We distinguish files visited for
Parts of a multifile document loaded when (re)-parsing the document.
BibTeX database files and TeX files loaded to find a reference, to display label context, etc.
The created buffers can be kept for later use, or be thrown away immediately after use, depending on the value of this variable:
Throw away as much as possible.
Throw away buffers created for parsing, but keep the ones created for lookup.
If a buffer is to be kept, the file is visited normally (which is
potentially slow but will happen only once). If a buffer is to be thrown
away, the initialization of the buffer depends upon the variable
nil means do initializations even when visiting file
nil, RefTeX may turn off find-file hooks and
other stuff to briefly visit a file. When
t, the full default
initializations are done (
find-file-hook etc.). Instead of
nil, this variable may also be a list of hook
functions to do a minimal initialization.
List of regular expressions to exclude certain input files from parsing.
If the name of a file included via
matched by any of the regular expressions in this list, that file is not
parsed by RefTeX.
nil means, re-parse only 1 file when asked to re-parse.
Re-parsing is normally requested with a C-u prefix to many RefTeX
commands, or with the r key in menus. When this option is
t in a multifile document, we will only parse the current buffer,
or the file associated with the label or section heading near point in a
menu. Requesting re-parsing of an entire multifile document then
requires a C-u C-u prefix or the capital R key in
nil means, save information gathered with parsing in files.
The file MASTER.rel in the same directory as MASTER.tex is
used to save the information. When this variable is
File extension for the file in which parser information is stored. This extension is added to the base name of the master file.
nil means, RefTeX may rescan the document when this seems
necessary. Applies (currently) only in rare cases, when a new label
cannot be placed with certainty into the internal label list.
nil means use a separate selection buffer for each label
type. These buffers are kept from one selection to the next and need
not be created for each use, so the menu generally comes up faster.
The selection buffers will be erased (and therefore updated)
automatically when new labels in its category are added. See the
nil means, selection buffers will be updated automatically.
When a new label is defined with
reftex-label, all selection
buffers associated with that label category are emptied, in order to
force an update upon next use. When
nil, the buffers are left
alone and have to be updated by hand, with the g key from the
label selection process. The value of this variable will only have any
