TTF_text is an OS/2 utility that will create big-text banners.

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.

Would you like to see some sample output:

  • 20 pt Large Times Italic, portrait orientation (170 columns)
  • 12 pt Bisque, landscape orientation (160 rows)
  • 16 pt Arial, portrait orientation (500 columns)

    The RX_TTF library
