     banner — print large banner on printer

     banner [-d] [-t] [-w width] 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

     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.

     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
