NAME ^

banner - print large banner on printer

SYNOPSIS ^

banner [-wn] 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. If -w is given, the output is scrunched down from a width of 132 to n , suit- able 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. The volume is great enough that you may want a printer or a fast hardcopy terminal, but if you are patient, a decwriter or other 300 baud terminal will do.

BUGS ^

Any new bugs are as yet unknown.

AUTHOR ^
