     banner — print large banner on printer

     banner [-w n] message ...

     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 changed from a width of 132 to n,
     suitable for a narrow terminal.

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

     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
