Generate BANNER record

Postby dipanshug » Thu Jun 05, 2008 11:23 am

I am sure somebody has already coded a cobol program to generate a banner for printing.
Where the text of the banner is provided by the parameter. For example, I would like my banner to say SD-M.
The banner Cobol program will generate
the BIG A pattern, the B pattern (using the M letter) etc -Each letter of the input (SD-M) would become a 12 by 14 set of 'M' characters.


Is there such Cobol program which I can download and use?

Output data :

    MMMMMMMM     MMMMMMMMMMM                     MMM        MMM
  MMMMMMMMMMMM   MMMMMMMMMMMM                    MMMM      MMMM
 MMM        MMM  MMM       MMM                   MMMMM    MMMMM
 MMMM            MMM        MMM                  MMMMMM  MMMMMM
  MMMMM          MMM        MMM                  MMMMMMMMMMMMMM
     MMMM        MMM        MMM  MMMMMMMMMMMMMM  MMM  MMMM  MMM
        MMMM     MMM        MMM  MMMMMMMMMMMMMM  MMM   MM   MMM
         MMMMM   MMM        MMM                  MMM        MMM
           MMMM  MMM        MMM                  MMM        MMM
 MMM        MMM  MMM       MMM                   MMM        MMM
  MMMMMMMMMMMM   MMMMMMMMMMMM                    MMM        MMM

I recall a BIGLETTR routine on the CBT shareware tape. Investigate at www.cbttape.org (lots of goodies).
