Zend\Text is a component to work on text strings. It contains the subcomponents:

  • Zend\Text\Figlet that enables developers to create a so called FIGlet text. A FIGlet text is a string, which is represented as ASCII art. FIGlets use a special font format, called FLT (FigLet Font). By default, one standard font is shipped with Zend\Text\Figlet, but you can download additional fonts here
  • Zend\Text\Table to create text based tables on the fly with different decorators. This can be helpful, if you either want to send structured data in text emails, which are used to have mono-spaced fonts, or to display table information in a CLI application. Zend\Text\Table supports multi-line columns, colspan and align as well.


Run the following to install this library:
