Anyone who's ever worked with me knows that I'm inordinately fond of figlet, a program that creates banner letters out of ordinary text. It works best as an example:
# figlet -w 200 -fsmall Here Be Dragons _ _ ___ ___ | || |___ _ _ ___ | _ ) ___ | \ _ _ __ _ __ _ ___ _ _ ___ | __ / -_) '_/ -_) | _ \/ -_) | |) | '_/ _` / _` / _ \ ' \(_-< |_||_\___|_| \___| |___/\___| |___/|_| \__,_\__, \___/_||_/__/ |___/
#!/bin/bash P="#" if [ $1 == "//" ]; then P="\/\/" shift fi figlet -w 200 -fsmall $* | sed 's/^/'$P' /' figlet -w 200 -fsmall $* | sed 's/^/'$P' /' | xclip -in -selection primary
Postscript: Typing 'figlet' consistently proved to be harder than I thought. Years of typing 'gif' has poisoned my typing rhythm.
