i'll test the other version of noweb mode. i'd like to use noweb with
Sweave, but reftex is a fairly central tool, so if it doesn't work
with noweb, i won't use it.

i do suspect the filename extension stuff. i attach the message i sent 
top carsten dominick. it seems that reftex is treating the added
extensions differently than the native ones (which are .tex and .ltx).

Subject: reftex and noweb (file extension?)

Hi -- I am trying to use reftex with auctex and bib-cite together with 
noweb (under Emacs Speaks Statistics, to complicate matters further).
I fail to get reftex to use, for instance, the bibliography
information, so inserting \cite's fails. 

Digging a little into this, it seemed that setting 
(reftex-file-extensions (quote (("tex" ".tex" ".ltx" ".nw") ("bib"

in the .xemacs/custom.el file might help. However, this does not help.
The test file I have created is tmp.nw:



x <- runif(100)



Parsing this file and saving the results create the file tmp.nw.rel: 
;; RefTeX parse info file
;; File: /home/markus/lib/cvs/common/tmp.nw.tex
;; User: markus (Markus Jäntti)

(set reftex-docstruct-symbol '(

(xr nil "\\\\\\\\\\\\")


(is-multi nil)


(master-dir . "/home/markus/lib/cvs/common/")


(file-error "/home/markus/lib/cvs/common/tmp.nw.tex")

The problem would thus seem to be with the name extention,
but I am unable to get reftex to recognize the extension
".nw". I wonder if you could help?
