There is a command \cleardoublepage .
No extra package is needed.
Have you a book on LaTeX, or a listing of commands?

Lamport,    Kopka and Daly,  the LaTeX Companion.
These are the best.

Maybe Grätzer provides a CD of examples with his book?
Did you look there.
In any case, \clearpage and \cleardoublepage are already part of LaTeX,
So you can just use them.

So I made a copy of the file 'cleardoublepage.sty' and placed in the same directory as the source file! That worked nicely, however, such solution seems ad hoc. Is there a 'standard' directory where I could have put this file so that TeXshop would have found it?
