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.
