banner output rotated in 10.2 UNIX
Not that big hint, but another little change is the banner command in 10.2 -- it is now displayed horizontally. Alas it's a bit unreadable onscreen, but much more printable. Check for yourself with banner Some message.

[Editor's note: To make the banner readable, reduce the font size a bunch of times with command-minus, then change your Terminal window shape to be tall and skinny ... looks kind of interesting, actually!]

banner 'font' size

use banner -w ## to change the "font" size

to make the max letter height 40, you'd do:

banner -w 40 message

just like its linux counterpart

have fun.

How do I get the old style "banner" back (the one that reads horizontally)?
