NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     banner - print large banner on printer

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     banner [-w width] message ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     banner prints a large, high quality banner on the standard output.  If
     the message is omitted, it prompts for and reads one line of its standard
     input.  If -w is given, the output is scrunched down from a width of 132
     to width, suitable for a narrow terminal.

     The output should be printed on paper of the appropriate width, with no
     breaks between the pages.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Several ASCII characters are not defined, notably <, >, [, ], \, ^, _, {,
     }, |, and ~.  Also, the characters ", ', and  are funny looking (but in a
     useful way.)

     The -w option is implemented by skipping some rows and columns.  The
     smaller it gets, the grainier the output.  Sometimes it runs letters
