NAME
       banner - print large banner on printer

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/games/banner [ -wn ] message ...

DESCRIPTION
       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 n , suitable for a narrow terminal.  If n
       is omitted, it defaults to 80.

       The output should be printed on a hard-copy device, up to 132 columns wide, with no breaks
       between	the pages. The volume is great enough that you may want a printer or a fast hard-
       copy terminal, but if you are patient, a decwriter or other 300 baud terminal will do.

BUGS
       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.
