Make Big ASCII Text With figlet

The _figlet__ command line tool makes
big, ascii art style text out of whatever you
pass it. For example:

-- pre/ 

figlet "Hello"
 _   _      _ _       
| | | | ___| | | ___  
| |_| |/ _ \ | |/ _ \ 
|  _  |  __/ | | (_) |
|_| |_|\___|_|_|\___/ 


-- /pre


There's a bunch of fonts which can be
called with the `-f`` flag:

-- pre/

figlet -f gothic "Hello"

_-_-            ,, ,,       
  /,            || ||       
  || __    _-_  || ||  /'\\ 
 ~||-  -  || \\ || || || || 
  ||===|| ||/   || || || || 
 ( \_, |  \\,/  \\ \\ \\,/  


-- /pre

All the fonts are stored in a figlet directory
you and find with:

-- pre/

figlet -I2

-- /pre

A quick way to list them is:

-- pre/

figlet -I2 | xargs ls

-- /pre


Figlet is available on macOS via homebrew with:

-- pre 

brew install figlet

-- p

Installing it on other operating systems is
left as an exercise for the reader.
