The pack­age be­low has been up­dated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ........................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: dashrule Author's name: Scott Pakin Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/dashrule Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Draw dashed rules in LaTeX Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
The dashrule pack­age makes it easy to draw a huge va­ri­ety of dashed rules (i.e., lines) in LaTeX. dashrule pro­vides a com­mand, \hdashrule, which is a cross be­tween LaTeX's \rule and PostScript's set­dash com­mand. \hdashrule draws hor­i­zon­tally dashed rules us­ing the same syn­tax as \rule, but with an ad­di­tional, set­dash-like pa­ram­e­ter that spec­i­fies the pat­tern of dash seg­ments and the space be­tween those seg­ments. Be­cause dashrule's rules are con­structed in­ter­nally us­ing \rule (as op­posed to, e.g., PostScript \spe­cials) they are fully com­pat­i­ble with ev­ery LaTeX back-end pro­ces­sor. This mi­nor up­date en­ables \hdashrule to be­gin a para­graph.
