Change definition of \sameauthors to turn off by same dash

I am using the amsart class and bibtex with the amsplain style. I have a bibliography file which is called whenever I use the bibtex command. (I run LaTeX through Winedt). In my references, if an author occurs more than once, the name is replaced with a straight line on all subsequent repeats. The journal I am submitting to wants the author name for every reference. Does anybody know how I suppress the dash feature, so it prints the full name of the author for every reference?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Alan Munn's answer to tex.stackexchange.com/q/51196/3954 gives the solution. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 14 '12 at 1:55

The amsplain bibliography style, as the name suggests, is very similar to the plain BibTeX style and suitable to AMS publications. We just need to use plain instead of amsplain. :)

 author = {Knuth, Donald E.},
 title = {The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4,  Fascicle 3: Generating All Combinations and Partitions},
 year = {2005},
 isbn = {0201853949},
 publisher = {Addison-Wesley Professional},

 author = {Knuth, Donald E.},
 title = {The art of computer programming,  volume 3: (2nd ed.) sorting and searching},
 year = {1998},
 isbn = {0-201-89685-0},
 publisher = {Addison Wesley Longman Publishing Co., Inc.},
 address = {Redwood City, CA, USA},








With amsplain:


And with plain:


I had to do this dirty trick:


otherwise, our output would have [1] instead of 1.:

plain 2

Hope it helps. :)
