psfbanner

Psfbanner takes some input text and displays it as ASCII art, using a PSF font. It reads font data from a specified PSF file, or uses a built-in 8x8 font.

Example output:

#### ### ## ## ## ## ### ###### ## ##### #### ## ### ## ### ##### ## ### ## ## ## ##### ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ### ## ## ## ##### ## ## ## ##### ## ## ## ## ####### ## ##### ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ## ###### #### ## ### ### ## ## ## ## ## ##### #### ####

It also has a 3D mode, in which the input text is displayed as three-dimensional. Example:

________ ______ __/ ____ /_ /_ /\ ____ ______ ____________ / /\__/___/\ \/ /_/___ ________ ____ ______ ____ ______ __________ ____ ______ /_ /_/___ /_ __/ __________/\__/ /_/_ \___\/ / ____ /_ /_____ /_ /_ /_/___ /_ /_ /_/___ /_ __/ ______ /_ /_ /_/ __ /_ \/ /\__/ /\/_ /__________\/_ ____/\ / /\__/ /\ _\____/ /\ \/ /\__/ /\ \/ /\__/ /\/ /_____/ /\ \/ __/\/___/\ / /_/_/ __/ /\/_______ /_ \/ /\___\/ / / / / / /_/ ____ / / / / / / / / / / / / / / __________/ / / /\_\/\___\/ / ______/\_\/__\______/ __/\__/ /_/ __/ __/_/_/ __/ /_ /___/_ /_/ / / / / / / / / / / / /_ /__________\/_/ /_/ __/ /______\/ /___________/\_\/_______/\ /___/\/_____/\_\/\/_____/\/___/\ /___/ / /___/ / /___/ / /___/ /\/_________/\ /_______/\ /_______/\ \___________\/ \_______\/ \___\/\_____\/ \_____\/\___\/ \___\/ \___\/ \___\/ \___\/ \_________\/ \_______\/ \_______\/

Usage

psfbanner [OPTIONS] [TEXT]

TEXT is the message that you want to output. If you don't supply it in the command-line arguments, psfbanner reads it from standard input instead.

Options:

-3, --3D three-dimensional output
-f, --font=FILENAME read font data from PSF file (file may be gzipped)
-h, --help show help message
-m, --map=FILENAME read tile map from file
-t, --tile=CHAR represent tiles with CHAR (2D output only; default character is #)
