NAME
     banner -- print large banner on printer

SYNOPSIS
     banner [-w width] message ...

DESCRIPTION
     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.  If -w is given, the output is
     scrunched down from a width of 132 to width, suitable for a narrow terminal.  For example:

	   /usr/games/banner -w 80 Hello

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

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.
