Now my function is:

  (while (re-search-forward "\\\\include{\\(.*\\)}")
         (find-file (concat "~/" (match-string 1) ".tex"))))

why it failed although I have much more occurences of \include{...} in
the main.tex file? Any idea?
Read the documentation for find-file.
Ok I see the problem I wonder if it would be better first to read a
buffer to a variable, then to search regexp, then assign matches to a
list and finally visit files from the list using dolist? But the problem
is how to create a list from regexp matches?


It does not really matter if you use find-file-noselect or create a list for this particular problem. The most easy way to build a list is perhaps this:

  (add-to-list 'my-list (match-string 1))
