# Command for horizontally flipped newline symbol

I'm looking for the command to produce the often used symbol indicating a line break --- but flipped horizontally.
So basically this symbol:

|
|
|    \
|------
/


It should fit within one line and should not require using a figure or floating object.

Edit: An example of a symbol, which satisfies my needs is the \Lsh arrow --- but rotated by 180°.

You can create it whit the Tikz package.
With this code you define the symbol:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{document}
\tikz{\draw[-latex] (0,0.2) |- (0.2,0);}
\end{document}


With pdfcrop (that you have on your machine if you're using TeXLive or MacTeX) you can trim the symbol from the page. Just write in a console (or terminal or command prompt)

pdfcrop <path of file>/filename.pdf


and it will create a cropped pdf with only the symbol inside. After that you can use it as an image on your document

bla bla \includegraphics{symbol.pdf} bla bla


You could define a macro to speed up the symbol writing if you have to use it lots of times

That looks (almost) nice. Thank you a lot. One follow up question: How do I get the arrow non-filled? Like the arrow of \rightarrow ? –  Torbjoern Apr 30 '11 at 8:01
just change the option -latex with -> at the \draw command and you'll get exactly the same arrow tip. –  Spike Apr 30 '11 at 8:05
Thanks a lot. This definitely looks exactly as I imagined. Guess, I will use Tikz more often in the future. –  Torbjoern Apr 30 '11 at 8:10
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{mathabx}
\begin{document}
\Huge
$\Rsh$ $\Lsh$ $\drsh$ $\dlsh$

\end{document}

\documentclass{minimal}
\reflectbox{\rotatebox[origin=c]{180}{$\Rsh$}}

Kind of. I'm just not satisfied with that hook at all. I'm looking for more the kind of \Lsh but rotated by 180°. –  Torbjoern Apr 30 '11 at 7:42
