Print characters as a poster. If no characters are supplied, banner prompts for them and reads an input line from standard input. By default, the results go to standard output, but they are intended to be sent to a printer.
Set width to width characters. Note that if your banner is in all lowercase, it will be narrower than width characters. If -w is not specified, the default width is 132. If -w is specified but width is not provided, the default is 80.
