BANNER(6)		       BSD Games Manual			     BANNER(6)

NAME
     banner -- print large banner on printer

SYNOPSIS
     banner [-d] [-t] [-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
     input.

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

     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.

AUTHORS
     Mark Horton

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.

     Messages are limited to 1024 characters in	length.
