The following linux shell script takes the hassle out of linking to papers on the arxiv:

echo "*''[http://arxiv.org/abs/$1 ]'' by  ($1, [http://arxiv.org/abs/$1 abs], [http://arxiv.org/ps/$1 ps], [http://arxiv.org/pdf/$1 pdf])"

To use it copy the above text into a file, say arxiv.sh. Then at the command line run chmod u+x arxiv.sh to made the script executable. To use it run arxiv.sh hep-th/0612999. You still need to enter the title and authors manually.

For the future it would nice to simply use <paper>hep-th/0612999</paper> into the wiki and for it to get the title and authors automatically. We would need to use the OAI-PHM interface.
