toilet, as you can see, is another “text enlargement” tool, in the vein of figlet. The obvious difference being, toilet is intended to apply color.
The real joy of working with toilet is the rainbow and metal effects that you can get, in addition to the fonts, unicode support and filters. figlet may have spearheaded the banner text tool, but toilet gives it a new spin.
No matter. You can enjoy the thrill of giant-size text in an amazing array of colors, regardless of which distro you use. 😉
