Hi all, I need to have text (or characters) appearing in the format below.

For character "H" it should appear as below:

hh____hh
hh____hh
hh____hh
hhhhhhhh
hhhhhhhh
hh____hh
hh____hh
hh____hh
hh____hh

Ignore the " ____" in between.

Please let me know how to achieve this
Thanks in advance.

Happy New year !! icon_smile.gif

Hi,

I would like to have this in a PS file.

In the CA7 logon screen, we get "CA7" as below. (exclude the '____')


_______CCCCCCCCCCC___AAAAAAAAAA_____77777777777
______CCCCCCCCCCC___AAAAAAAAAA_____77777777777
_____CCC____________AAA____AAA____________7777
____CCC____________AAAAAAAAAAA___0000____7777
___CCC____________AAAAAAAAAAA___0000____7777
__CCC____________AAA_____AAA___________7777
_CCCCCCCCCCC___AAA_____AAA___________7777
CCCCCCCCCCC___AAA_____AAA___________7777

Hope you all wud have seen this. My question was how do you achieve this for any desired Text ?

Hope I've made myself clear !

You might want to try the BLOX REXX Program.

It can also be accomplished by running the Unix BLOCK command.
