getMRef
The MR Number is a number (or pair of identifiers) used to uniquely identify a specific record in the
Mathematical Reviews (MR) Database.
Every item in the database has a sevendigit access number, and some items also have
an additional identifier in parentheses following the sevendigit number for compatibility with the paper
publication Mathematical Reviews.
Example: MR2025596 or MR2025596 (2004i:13026)
getMRef scans the bibliography section of an input .tex file, connect to the AMS BatchMref service
http://www.ams.org/batchmref and adds a \MR{} command
to the bibliography entry.
If a hyperref package is used, \MR{<num>} could be defined as:
\def\MR#1{\href{http://www.ams.org/mathscinetgetitem?mr=#1}{MR#1}}
This Python script requires python ver. 2.2
