can one compile links and backlinks?

At the risk of asking something totally obvious but is there a way in an interlinked database (Wiki-type or other) to have a list of links of all the other pages that link to the current page?

Collating all the outgoing links from the current page would be merely a convenience, albeit a welcome one.

Any ideas?


Has anyone come up with a solution for back links? It is actually a very useful feature to have backlinks listed inside the item to which they are linked… VoodooPad and TrunkNotes both support this capability (as does MediaWiki). I’d like this feature so much so, that I’d actually pay someone to write an applescript which would search for all links and append them to the RTF item at the bottom, as well as update those links each time the item is opened.
