pyphoon

ASCII Art Phase of the Moon (Python version)

Screenshots

Based on the original version of Jef Poskanzer jef@mail.acme.com written in Pascal in 1979 (and later translated by himself into C, and now by me into Python).

Usage

$ pyphoon --help
usage: pyphoon [-h] [-n LINES] [date]

Show Phase of the Moon

positional arguments:
  date                  Date for that the phase of the Moon must be shown.
                        Today by default

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -n LINES, --lines LINES
                        Number of lines to display (size of the moon)
