# How can I make a horizontal dashed line?

How can I make a horizontal dashed line in LaTeX?

Just writing lots of single dashes results in a continuous horizontal line.

You can look at the dashrule package, for example.

\def\dashfill{\cleaders\hbox{-}\hfill}

\def\dashfill{\cleaders\hbox to 2em{-}\hfill}

What about adding spaces between the dashes: - - - - - - ? When I try it, it works just fine. Or do you want something else?
