This is an Amiga port of Figlet, an excellent ASCII font rendering
program described below.

This Amiga version is a little different from the original program.
The argument parsing is changed to the AmigaDOS 2.0 "ReadArgs" style
so that you can type "figlet ?" and you will see the following
template:

   FONTNAME,DEUTSCH/S,CENTER/S,PARAGRAPH/S,COLUMNS/N,SMUSHMODE/N:

You can specify the fontname (without using the keyword) and can
specify any of the other keywords by putting the keyword on the
command line.  For example:

	FIGLET CENTER  			Use the default font and
					center the text.

	FIGLET smslant COLUMNS 40	Use the smslant font and
					set the column width to 40.

(the keywords don't need to be upper case).

Once you start the program, it will accept any input you type and
print it's output back in the console.  A handy use for this program
is to run it in a console window and try the various options
until you get the text you want, and then cut it from the console
window and paste it into whatever program you want it in.

As Figlet itself changes, I will try and keep this port current.  The
most current Amiga version will be found on Portal.  This Amiga port
is by Steve Tibbett, and I take all credit for any bugs in this
version - if you find a problem, please send the bug report to me,
not to the original authors.  If it really is a problem with Figlet
and not my port of it, then I will forward it to them.
