Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/bullcntr

The bullcntr package defines the command "\bullcntr", which can be thought
of as an analogue of the "\fnsymbol" command: like the latter, it displays
the value of a counter lying between 1 and 9, but uses, for the purpose, a
regular pattern of bullets.  Approximately, these nine patterns of bullets
are laid down as follows:

  *            *   *
                              *   *
  1              2              3

  *            *   *           * *
*   *            *            *   *
  *            *   *           * *

An ancillary package is included along with the bullcntr package: the
bullenum package.  This is a "wrapper" that calls bullcntr and, in
addition, defines a new environment, called "bullenum", that lets you
create enumeration lists numbered via the "\bullcntr" command.

I wrote this package as an amusing exercise during a boring afternoon in
which I had nothing better to do!

bull­c­ntr – Dis­play list item counter as reg­u­lar pat­tern of bul­lets

The bull­c­ntr pack­age de­fines the com­mand bull­c­ntr, which may be thought of as an ana­logue of the \fn­sym­bol com­mand: like the lat­ter, it dis­plays the value of a counter ly­ing be­tween 1 and 9, but uses, for the pur­pose, a reg­u­lar pat­tern of bul­lets.
