       TOIlet - display large colourful characters


       toilet [ -hkostvSW ] [ -d fontdirectory ]
              [ -f fontfile ] [ -F filter ] [ -w outputwidth ]
              [ -I infocode ] [ -E format ] [ message ]


       TOIlet  prints  text  using  large characters made of smaller characters. It is similar in
       many ways to FIGlet with additional features  such  as  Unicode  handling,  colour  fonts,
       filters and various export formats.


       TOIlet either reads its input from the command line or from the standard input.


       -f, --font <name>
              Use  the  given  font  instead  of  the default value. Fonts are .flf or .tlf files
              stored in the /usr/share/figlet directory. Fonts  are  looked  first  in  the  font
              directory,  then  in  the  current directory. There is also a special built-in font
              called term that serves as a fallback if no font is available.

       -d, --directory <dir>
              Specify the directory in which to look for fonts. The default value is set at build
              time and usually defaults to /usr/share/figlet.

       -s, -S, -k, -W, -o
              Select  character  composition rules.  -S sets smushing (nicely merging glyphs), -k
              sets kerning (rendering subcharacters as close  to  each  other  as  possible),  -W
              renders  characters  at  their  full width and -o sets overlapping (glyphs slightly
              overlap the previous  one).   -s  (default  behaviour)  uses  the  font's  smushing
              information if any, otherwise forces overlapping, or does nothing if the glyph only
              has one subcharacter.

       -w, --width <width>
              Set the output width. By default, TOIlet will  wrap  its  output  at  80  character

       -t, --termwidth
              Set the output width to the terminal width.

       -F, --filter <filters>
       -F, --filter list
       --gay, --metal
              Specify  a  list  of  filters  to  be applied to the output.  <filters> is a colon-
              separated list of filters such as crop:rotate:gay and  the  special  argument  list
              outputs a list of available filters.

              --gay  and  --metal  are  shortcuts to commonly used filters that are guaranteed to
              exist. Several -F flags can also be specified on the command line,  in  which  case
              filters will be applied in order of appearance.

       -E, --export <format>
       -E, --export list
       --irc, --html
              Specify  the  output  format.  By default, TOIlet will output UTF-8 text using ANSI
              colour codes suitable for most terminals such as XTerm or rxvt.   <format>  is  the
              name  of  the  export  format  as  recognised by libcaca. The special argument list
              outputs a list of available export formats.

              --irc and --html are shortcuts to commonly used export formats that are  guaranteed
              to exist.

       -h, --help
              Display a short help message and exit.

       -I, --infocode <code>
              Print  a  FIGlet infocode. This flag is only here for FIGlet compatibility, see the
              figlet manpage for more information about it.

       -v, --version
              Output version information and exit.
