# [texhax] maintaining a database map for latex

Sun Sep 20 12:41:44 CEST 2009

```Hey,

http://debian.org would be rendered as
http://mybooksite/quicklinks/123 or similar. Can LaTeX help me with
this?

Can I specify a command like \link{} in such a way that LaTeX
takes #1, appends it to a map from contents to unique ID, returns
the unique ID so that it gets printed into the document, and later
allows me to access the map so that I can use it for the CGI on the
website?

Thanks,
