BANNER(1V)                                                          BANNER(1V)



NAME
       banner - display a string in large letters

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/5bin/banner strings

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is  available  with  the  System V software installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       banner prints its arguments (each up to 10 characters  long)  in  large
       letters on the standard output.

SEE ALSO
       echo(1V)

BUGS
       When  banner  is  used with characters from the top half of the Latin-1
       character set (see iso_8859_1(7)), each character is mapped to  a  best
       approximation for that character based on the available ASCII character
       shapes (for example, diacritical marks are removed).
