CTAN up­date: dashrule 1.2

Date: Au­gust 9, 2009 10:44:29 PM CEST
On Sun­day, 9 Au­gust 2009, Scott Pakin sub­mit­ted an up­date to the dashrule pack­age. It should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/dashrule Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Draw dashed rules 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. Ver­sion 1.2 of dashrule fixes a bug (re­ported by Pi­azza Luca) that pre­vented \hdashrule from work­ing prop­erly within a tab­u­lar cell and adds sup­port for empty dash pat­terns for more con­sis­tency with PostScript's set­dash com­mand.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/dashrule . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=dashrule (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html . Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team, Joachim Schrod
