+FIGlet is a program for making large letters out of ordinary text
+FIGlet prints its input using large characters (called FIGcharacters)
+made up of ordinary screen characters (called sub-characters).
+FIGlet output is generally reminiscent of the sort of signatures many
+people like to put at the end of e-mail and UseNet messages. It is also
+reminiscent of the output of some banner programs, although it is
+oriented normally, not sideways.
+The homepage of FIGlet shows some examples of this.
