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 a hard-copy device, up to
132 columns
     wide, 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 together.
