ANSI Art Tool

The ANSI Art tool is used for rendering ANSI art files (usually with .ANS extension). The tool parses this file and converts the characters into their original old-skool MS-DOS equivalent font. The modern ASCII set isn’t quite the same, so this program redraws each character from a font map.

ANSI art is a form of computer art that flourished in the mid 90s. ANSI art was composed by colorizing sequences of characters and blocks drawn in the built-in system font, which made it easy to transmit across telephone wires. As a result, ANSI art was especially popular on Bulletin Board Systems (BBSes).
