Well, it is impressive because I made the program to make it by myself! I made a lot of tests last night to improve my ASCII-art program. It´s main usage is the conversion of lineart graphics. It is bad in converting photos. The source code is available now in the basic section here!

ASCII art with a type-writer. 8O That's pretty hardcore.

8O Ascii-art is somewhat older than I thought (older than ASCII for that matter :lol: ).

A traditional term for a very hesitant and inexperienced typist..

You hunt for the key you want and then peck at it. :mrgreen:

Some kind of progress indicator might be nice, if it doesn't interfere with calculations.
