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 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 4 5 6 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 7 8 9 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.
