BANNER(6)                    BSD Reference Manual                    BANNER(6)

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 omitted, it prompts for and reads one line of its standard in-
     put. 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

     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 to-
     gether.
