Giant Letters utility

Post by Bukster »

Here's a handy utility to display giant letters on the screen. Input a string and see it turn into giant scrolling letters. This could be good for a display for a computer expo etc. It will support colour if you have a Chroma interface but works fine with a 16k ram pack only.

I've added a link to the program on my Chroma native colour software web page.
