[ANN] asciiart [0.0.5] released

From: Stephen S.
Sent on: Saturday, February 2, 2013 6:04 PM
Turn images on your heard drive or on the internet to asciiart...even colorized asciiart.

New In This Version: Colorized output!

In Code:

require 'asciiart'

a = AsciiArt.new("/Users/sschor/Desktop/uncle_larry.jpg")
#or
puts a.to_ascii_art
=> ...untold glory follows
#or
puts a.to_ascii_art(color: true)
=> ...now you're cooking with gas

From The Command Line using the 'asciiart' executable:
      $ asciiart ~/Desktop/uncle_larry.jpgor even
      $ asciiart -h

	Usage: asciiart [options] <path_or_url>
	    -w, --width WIDTH                Width of the finished Ascii Art (Default: 100)
	    -c, --color                      Switch to use colored terminal output (Default: false)
	    -i, --invert-chars               Invert the character map. Depending on your terminal and image this can make the image clearer (or a lot worse)
	    -v, --version                    Show AsciiArt version
	    -h, --help                       Show this message

Dependencies:
