Is there a package containing the squiggly arrow that Artin uses in his Algebra text? It looks like:Artin arrow

I've seen some of the options using tikz on here, but they aren't quite the same.

    What makes this squiggly arrow so special? With the decorations.pathmorphing library (and arrows) I can do \draw[decorate, decoration={zigzag, segment length=+2pt, amplitude=+.75pt,post length=+4pt}, -stealth'] (a) -- (c); which looks quite good to me. – Qrrbrbirlbel Dec 10 '13 at 21:36
  • @Qrrbrbirlbel: I'm writing something pertaining to this text and want the notation to be consistent. – Paul Elfish Dec 10 '13 at 21:54
  • The options I have seen so far, including the link from @egreg, are similar, but not quite the same. If I could get the same, I would be delighted. – Paul Elfish Dec 10 '13 at 21:55

    this arrow is in unicode at U+27FF, so it should be in the stix and xits fonts. the reference i have gives it the name \longrightsquigarrow. – barbara beeton Dec 10 '13 at 22:13

    There also is \longrightsquigarrow inside of the mdsymbol package (it is a little shorter) – someonr Dec 10 '13 at 22:42

amssymb has one called \rightsquigarrow, but you may find that it's not long enough:

\[a\rightsquigarrow\overline{a}\]
