     DESCRIPTION
          Banner prints its arguments, one per line, in
           #                                   #
            #                                  #
            #    ###  # ##   ## #  ###        ####  #   # # ##   ###
            #       # ##  # #  ## #   #        #    #   # ##  # #   #
            #    #### #     #   # ####         #    #   # #   # ####
            #   #   # #     #   # #            #  # #  ## #   # #       ##
             #   ###  #      ####  ###          ##   ## # ####   ###    ##
                                #                       # #
                            ####                     ###  #

          The font may be selected from /usr/jerq/font (see
          font(9.5)).

          Rot rotates its input clockwise ninety degrees.

               banner Sideways | rot

          runs down the page, and

               banner Upside Down | rot | rot

          is disconcerting.

          Rnd scales the non-white-space characters in its input by
          integral height and width.

          Bigp generates banners suitable for printing on a line-
          printer.  Its output is approximately the same as

               banner -defont text | rot | rnd 2 4 .

          If no arguments are supplied, bigp creates a banner from the
          standard input.
