# [OS X TeX] Filling the box in a table

In the following:

\newdimen\digitwidth \settowidth\digitwidth{0}

\def~{\hspace{\digitwidth}}
\def\divrule#1#2{\noalign{\moveright#1\digitwidth\vbox{\hrule
width#2\digitwidth}}}
\catcode\?=\active \def?{}
\hspace*{-3mm}%
\begin{tabular}{@{} |c| @{}}
\midrule
%Row0
\textsf{{\Large X}}
\\
\midrule
\end{tabular}

the code does not quite do what I would like which is for the X to
"fill" the box (in a grid for entering choices for multiple choice
questions) as \Large increases the size of the box.

I adapted thiS—which I don't understand—from something given to me on
this list once upon a time for something else but tinkering did not
result in the desired effect.

Hopeful regards
