Banner*
  • n. The title page added to printouts by most print spoolers (see spool). Typically includes user or account ID information in very large character-graphics capitals. Also called a `burst page', because it indicates where to burst (tear apart) fanfold paper to separate one user's printout from the next.
  • A similar printout generated (typically on multiple pages of fan-fold paper) from user-specified text, e. g. , by a program such as UNIX's `banner(1,6)'.
  • On interactive software, a first screen containing a logo and/or author credits and/or a copyright notice.
