Banner fills an apparent hole in Linux - that is, that is does not provide
a "banner" program itself, while nearly all UNIX systems seem to do so.
Banner prints a "banner" on the screen that corresponds to the first 10
characters of a string entered on the command line, in a way similar to
what you might see when using Solaris or AIX. There are fancier things out
there, but this is nice and simple.
