Documentation for "set style line" missing "dashtype" option

Daniel J Sebald
The documentation for "set style line" is currently:

  Syntax:
        set style line <index> default
        set style line <index> {{linetype  | lt} <line_type> | <colorspec>}
                               {{linecolor | lc} <colorspec>}
                               {{linewidth | lw} <line_width>}
                               {{pointtype | pt} <point_type>}
                               {{pointsize | ps} <point_size>}
                               {{pointinterval | pi} <interval>}
                               {palette}
        unset style line
        show style line

"dashtype | dt" is also an acceptable option.  E.g.,

set style line 1 dashtype "..-"
plot x ls 1

Also, I just want to confirm that prior to the introduction of
"dashtype" as a valid option, the dash pattern was terminal specific and
not selectable but at the driver level, i.e., the 8 cyclic patterns.
Correct?

Correct.  Not all terminals that had a "dashed" mode provided
as many as 8 patterns.  It varied from 4 to some large number.
