# CTAN Update: dashrule

Date: March 31, 2013 12:54:45 PM CEST
Scott Pakin submitted an update to the dashrule package. 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 1.3 fixes a small bug that introduced spurious spaces into the output.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/dashrule . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/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 .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
