# [texhax] ~\ref{} and \cite{}

i have two separate .tex files.  i'd like to refer to Figures, Tables in
the first .tex file from within the second .tex file via \cite

i know  \include{first_file} and ~\ref{table-1} will probably work,
however ;

i'd rather do something like \cite[~\ref{table-1}]{citation-2008} but that
obviously will fail - is there a way to get latex to parse the other file
w/o using \include{first_file}?
