Sample text

And sequences Two commands that work exactly the same way as \hfill are \dotfill and \hrulefill Instead of inserting empty space, these commands fill the gap with dots or a ruled line, as follows: Start \dotfill\ Finish\\ and Left \hrulefill\ Center \hrulefill\ Right\\ produce Start . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7. Fine-tuning text 31 Any combination of \hfill, \dotfill, and \hrulefill may be given on one line. If any of these commands appears more than once at one location, the corresponding filling will be printed that many more times than for a single occurrence.

A * is added to their name to modify their functionality somehow. For example, the \section command has a *-form \section* which, unlike the regular form, does not print an automatic section number. For each such command, the difference between the normal and *-form will be explained in the description of the individual commands. Command names consist only of letters, with the first non-letter indicating the end of the name. If there are optional or mandatory arguments following the command name, then it ends before the [ or { bracket, since these characters are not letters.

The command \nopagebreak has the opposite effect: between paragraphs, it prevents a page break from occurring there, and within a paragraph, it stops a page break that might take place at the end of the current line. Optional numbers between 0 and 4 express the degree of encouragement or discouragement for a page break. The analogy with the command \linebreak goes further: just as the line before the break is left and right justified with extra interword spacing, in the same way the page before the break is expanded with interline spacing to make it top and bottom justified.
