This should ap­pear at your lo­cal mir­ror within a day. Thanks again, Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ........................................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: dashun­der­gaps Ver­sion num­ber: 1.0 Author's name: Mer­ci­adri Luca Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Aims at help­ing the LaTeX user at un­der­lin­ing a given set of words Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Briefly, this pack­age aims at help­ing the LaTeX user at un­der­lin­ing a given set of words by ei­ther a line (us­ing \un­der­line{text}), dots (us­ing \dotu­line{text}) or even a dashed line (us­ing \dashu­line{text}). Var­i­ous op­tions were im­ple­mented for this. This can be used in con­junc­tion with the phan­tom­text op­tion, which al­lows the user to write a text with gaps, e.g. for a com­ple­tion by stu­dents. Th­ese gaps can be com­pleted with the real in­put us­ing the teach­er­notes op­tion. Please note that this is a re­ally ba­sic pack­age. For more info on it, please look at the man­ual.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/dashun­der­gaps . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/dashun­der­gaps (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 .

dashun­der­gaps – Pro­duce gaps that are un­der­lined, dot­ted or dashed

The pack­age pro­vides com­mands (\un­der­line, \dotu­line and \dashu­line) each of which un­der­lines its ar­gu­ment with one of the styles the pack­age is ca­pa­ble of. A phan­tom mode is pro­vided, where the un­der­line (of what­ever form) can serve for a ‘fill-in block’ for stu­dent eval­u­a­tion sheets.
