     printerbanner -- print large banner on printer

     printerbanner [-d] [-t] [-w width] message ...

     Banner prints a large, high quality banner on the standard output.  If the message is omit-
     ted, it prompts for and reads one line of its standard input.

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

     The following options are available:

     -d      Enable debug.

     -t      Enable trace.

     -w width
	     Change the output from a width of 132 to width, suitable for a narrow terminal.

     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.

     Messages are limited to 1024 characters in length.

     This program is called just banner on FreeBSD.
