ASCII Art Program
I've seen a program that takes a string in ANY font installed on the system (not just pre-determined fonts) and converts the string into intricate ASCII art (maintaining the apperiance of the font). The art is not primitive, it doesn't just use one a two charaters arbitrarily; the character use (seems) to be determined by some kind of criteria.
Has anyone seen a program like this? Does anyone have any idea on how this was done, as I am looking for a project to test my *mad* skills with the compiler.
