BANNER(6)                        Games Manual                        BANNER(6)

NAME
     banner -- print large banners

SYNOPSIS
     banner [-w width] [message]

DESCRIPTION
     banner prints a large, high quality banner on standard output.  If
     message is omitted, one line of standard input is read for it.  A prompt
     is written to standard error in case standard input is connected to a
     terminal.

     If -w is given, the output is scrunched down from a width of 132 (the
     default) to width, suitable for a narrow terminal.

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

EXIT STATUS
     The banner utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
     The following command will print the current date as a banner on standard
     output, using a width of 80:

           /usr/games/banner -w 80 `date`

SEE ALSO
     banner(1), lpr(1)

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.
