Seems that digging for several hours for solution did not help me, so I must ask a question directly.

So, I'm writing a book, that consists of chapters and sections. The deal is with the table of contents.

I do not want dotted lines and page numbers to follow the chapter name in the table of contents.

But I do want them to follow section names.

Also, how can I make TeX write in contents:

Chapter 1. This is the first chapter

instead of:

  1. This is the first chapter

I am using the book class with this modification:



I saw some decisions, but I do not want to write something before each chapter, how can I define it in my package?

Thank you for assistance =)

P.S. A little question: where can I find a manual for writing TeX styles?

  • Wow - three questions in one! "The LaTeX Companion", Mittlebach, Goosens et al, AW 2004 is pretty good on how to write packages.
