Welcome2L is a little program that may run at login time to produce a
BBS like ANSI login logo. It's very similar to Linux_Logo. But where
Linux_Logo intends to be portable, Welcome2L intends to produce the
best looking ANSI screens by making full usage of PC graphic
characters. Therefore an architecture able to display those characters
(i386, Alpha with TGA adapter, ... ) is required to use it. And, even
if it will work on larger screens, it will only produce 80 column ANSI
-getty Will display more accurate information when launched at boot
-gettps Like -getty, but works with gettyps(8) program.
-nolf Will not add an empty line to the ansi screen produced.
-msg -msg"text of message" will show the message given as the
-cpu -cpu"name" will show the name given as the CPU name.
-scrxx Will display screen number xx.
Will display a random screen.
-xmas Will display an Xmas screen.
Will automatically display an Xmas screen in December and
-lcolxx Will change the prompt color to the color number xx. Type
Welcome2L -help to see what number is attributed to a color.
Display an "Unauthorized access is prohibited" line at the
bottom of the ANSI screen.
-notime When dispalying date information, do not display time.
Turn blinking off. Useful with -xmas or -xmasauto on
framebuffer devices, which do not support blinking.
-help Will display usage information.

Welcome2L is not intended to run in a xterm.
Because "A 'welcome' page has been proven to be an invitation to come
your system, thus making it legal to hack into your box." you may want
to use the "-private" arg when running Welcome2L to display an
"Unauthorized access is prohibited" line at the bottom of the ANSI
