Scans of papers by other authors.


article, a bash script to download a paper indexed by arXiv, Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt MATH, CrossRef (DOI), or Library Genesis and save it under a file name like smith-brown-an-example-of-a-model-category.pdf.

mathid, a bash script to retrieve the identifiers in the five repositories above using only the title of a paper. You need xidel and jq to run this script.

texuni, a C program to recode accented characters in TeX to Unicode.

jpegtopdf and jbig2topdf, programs to assemble a bunch of JPEG/JBIG2 files into a PDF file. The latter was used to produce the bilevel PDF files on the scans page.
