Does anyone know of a library that will convert ASCII or a the contents of

I'm basically looking for the inverse.

Does this question pertain to ncurses WINDOW structures (in light of of this mailing list's topic) or simply the windows of terminal emulators (in light of the reference to aalib). If it's the latter you're after, use any old screenshot utility (e.g. ImageMagick's import).

If it's the former you're after, color me interested.  😃

On the other hand, if it's converting text you're after, try the following (ImageMagick):

convert -size 128x28 xc:white -draw 'text 8,18 "XTerm fallback fonts!"' hooray.png
