#########  Twiglets
#########  ========
   ##    
   ##      It's a bit like Figlets, but uses ordinary
   ##      Amiga fonts, pixilates them into ascii and
   ##      prints them vertically downwards, like the
   ##      example on the left, which is the 10pt
   ##      "Ultraline" font.
   ##    
           I was trying out some code for another
##  ## ##  project, and accidentally wrote this.
##  ## ##
##  ## ##  Usage
##  ## ##  =====
##  ## ##
##     ##  Template:
##     ##  FONT/A,SIZE/A,PIXCHAR/K,NOCHAR/K,TEXT/F/A
#########
#########  FONT = font name, with the ".font" extension
         
    ##     SIZE = point size of the font
    ##   
    ##     PIXCHAR = the character to use to plot a
    ##             pixel in ascii (default = *)
    ##   
    ##     NOCHAR = the character to use to plot a
    ##            "non-pixel" in ascii (default space)
#########
#########  TEXT = the text to render
         
#########  Examples
#########  ========
##       
##     ##  twiglets topaz.font 8 Chris
##     ##
##     ##  writes "Chris" in 8 character high Topaz text.
##     ##  
#########
#########  twiglets helvetica.font 20 PIXCHAR=":" Hello
         
##         writes "Hello" in 20 character high Helvetica,
##         using colons on a plain background.
##       
##         Tips
##         ====
##       
##         Although Twiglets will happily use any font
#########  supported by the font libraries on your system,
#########  due to the nature of the program it is
           better to use bitmapped fonts.
#########
#########  Future
           ======
         
#########  There are unlikely to be any further releases,
#########  however if you find any bugs - especially in
           regards to non-ASCII characters in other
#########  character sets - please let me know.  If you
#########  would like the source code, ask me and maybe
           you will get it.
