Hello Jim,

overlooked them until now, and I came accross this statement:

--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<-- begin -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----
@LaTeX{} writes the information from the labels to a file with the same
name as the file containing the @code{\label@{...@}} but with an
@file{.aux} extension.
--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<--  end  -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----

I understand this as if when the input is split in N .tex files, and you
have N \label commands, one in each file, then you would have N .aux
files with the corresponding \newlabel commands.

I am surprised, as I thought that there is one single .aux file, named
\jobname.aux, where \jobname is a macro expanding to the basename of the
master .tex file, or to some name passed on the command line with the
-jobname option if any.

Please tell me if I am wrong.

VBR,
Vincent
