What's special about TTF_text is that the pattern for the banner characters is specified using a true-type font (TTF) name, and point size, provided by the user. Basically, you can use most of the thousands of publically available TTF fonts to make a big text banner.
Options include portrait or landscape output, and some flexibility in the choice of foreground and background characters.
