CURSIVE(6)			 Games Manual			    CURSIVE(6)

NAME
       cursive - print text in cursive script

SYNOPSIS
       cursive [ -in ] [ -tn ] [message]

DESCRIPTION
       Cursive	prints a line of text in a rather crude	cursive	script.	 It is
       intended	for use	mainly for the generation of decorative	signatures for
       electronic  mail.   If  message text is given on	the command line, that
       text is used.  Otherwise	the text will be read from standard  input  up
       to  an end of file.  The	-i option sets the minimum spacing between ad-
       jacent characters.  The default is -i1 .	 The -t	option sets the	length
       of the trailing lines on	the end	of each	word.  The default is -t1 .

       The  '_'	 character is treated in a special way.	 It may	be inserted in
       the text	anywhere you wish to lengthen a	connecting  line  between  two
       letters.

BUGS
       Many ASCII characters are not defined, notably the numbers and symbols.
       Punctuation is mostly available.	 Some characters are rather ugly.  The
       author has lousy	handwriting.
