# Enabling dashed option for biblatex-ieee style

According to the `biblatex` manual, the dashed option is only available in `authortitle`, `authoryear` and `verbose` styles. Is it possible to enable this option for the `biblatex-ieee` style?

I want to disable putting dash when I have recurring author list. I did a hack by editing the `ieee.bbx` file but I am wondering if there is any better way to do it.

One of the advantages of `biblatex` is that you can alter the style in your LaTeX document. So you should be able to simply alter the `authors` bibliography macro in your preamble. Is that what you mean by 'hacking `ieee.bbx`? –  Joseph Wright Sep 6 '12 at 11:54
@JosephWright, yes I modified the authors macro, but I don't like this method. there should be an easier way. –  rowman Sep 8 '12 at 8:16

``````\renewbibmacro*{bbx:savehash}{}
in the preamble (this is what the `dash` option for the standard styles mentioned does).
I can add this to `biblatex-ieee` if it is of more general interest, as an option modelled on the standard styles. –  Joseph Wright Sep 6 '12 at 12:42
