Dotplan is a program that performs "animation" effects on text
strings, so that .plan files (hence the name) look a little more
fancy (on low-speed dialup lines).  Some of the effects make the
characters appear one at a time; others have the characters
appear at once and "move" around.

EXAMPLES
     dotplan 3 This is sample text # Display string using style 3
     dotplan                       # Display usage information
     dotplan s                     # Display styles in all styles
     dotplan d This is more text   # Display string in all styles
     dotplan 1 Hi there... > .plan # Save output in actual .plan file
