ASCII art printer v1.0
_ _ ___ /\ ( / | | /\ |) | /--\_)\_| | /--\|\ | .
Usually used to show pictures printed in letters. So why not show letters printed in underscores, slashes, backslashes and pipe characters? If you think this idea is totally crazy, then this program is probably not for you.
The following screenshots were taken usingman ascii | ./aaprint.pl.
Using this package, the "unreadable" font (2x1 pixels) becomes almost readable again! Almost... ;D
Note: the kerning algorithm used in the program is quite primitive, and therefore still exhibits weaknesses with some character combinations.
