### Block Diagrams, How to draw them ??

Could anyone pls tell me how u would go about drawing
block diagrams using TeX ? I've heard of a tool called
DiaGraph, which I guess will generate the required TeX
source code for a block diagram.
Is there a package in TeX that supports this feature?
It would have been a lot more easier that way !!

Others in this league are Dia, XFig. Even OpenOffice.org Draw  or
whatever you fancy can be used by exporting to eps.

### Help: Different styles of horizontal and vertical lines in Tabular or array environment.

Dear Friends,

Please inform me how I should draw horizontal and vertical lines of
different patterns/styles and thickness instead of default
style/thickness in Tabular or array environment.

E.g.

=====================================
|   ai   |   bi   .   ci   "   di  ||
=====================================
|   a1   |   b1   .   c1   "   d1  ||
|   a2   |   b2   .   c2   "   d2  ||
|   a3   |   b3   .   c3   "   d3  ||
-------------------------------------

Thanking you in anticipation.

G. Sharma

1. You can change the thickness of horizontal and vertical lines in
the *entire* table, by changing the value of the length parameter
"\arrayrulewidth". Changing the widths of *some* of the lines is
a bit more tricky. Please see the section "Variable-width rules"
of the "LaTeX Companion".

2. Double horizontal lines can be produced by "\hline\hline" and double
vertical lines by || in the preamble. For finer control, use the
package "hhline"

3. For dashed lines, use the package "arydshln"

### counting TeX users

Subject: LUG-boards: counting TeX users

Greetings all,

A question often asked is "how many TeX users are there", but there are
no (to my knowledge) hard numbers, only guesses.

At the Practical TeX 2004 conference in San Francisco, Peter Flynn
graciously volunteered to create a "TeX counter" form, so that people
can register themselves or their organizations as TeX users.

The counter is still in test mode (so the numbers are completely
fictitious).  Please try it out at:
http://oimelc.ucc.ie/tex/counter/

If you fill out the form there, you'll be sent a link in email; if you

Peter and I would love to (a) get your feedback on the form, from the
formatting to the certificate design to the questions asked, and
(b) get your ok to say that it's "endorsed" by the user groups.  I.e.,
we'll put other logos on the certificate, etc.  Ultimately, we'll move
it to tug.org.

So ... if interested, please send me and/or Peter to a "nice" (i.e.,
scalable, if at all possible) version to your logo, and we'll include it
