DIAGNOSTICS

The output is centered for a 80 columns screen, so it can be used on most display easilly, and not found at execution time.
 
alliancebanner: Error: Resulting size bigger than 80 columns not allowed
The tool argument must be such that its resulting size isn't wider that 80 culumns. This means, since the character set is proportional, that the longest name to be output is about 8 characters long.
alliancebanner: Error: Character out of [0-9A-Za-z] range
The tool parameter has a non allowed character in it. For simplicity purposes, only numbers and letters are accepted.
